Apparently Cindy Sheehan wasn’t available, so Obama went with her ideological twin, Chuck Hagel, for his bid to spit the ultimate insult at the Department of Defense. Surprisingly, someone has been found who actually approves of this disgusting nomination. Not so surprisingly, that someone is America’s worst external enemy, Iran:
Iran’s Foreign Ministry appears to be backing President Barack Obama’s pick of former Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., as secretary of defense.
Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said in an interview Tuesday that he hopes the Hagel nomination will improve relations between the United States and Tehran.
That it will, as the two governments move closer to an open alliance against both Israel and the American people.
Hagel has previously criticized discussion of a military strike by either the U.S. or Israel against Iran and spoken of the influence of the “Jewish lobby” on Congress. He also has backed efforts to bring Iran to the table for talks on future peace in Afghanistan.
After all the blood and treasure we expended, Democrats left Iraq to fall under Iranian domination. The same is evidently planned for Afghanistan.
Technically, Hagel was a Republican during his lamentable stint in the Senate. To call him a RINO would be an insult to relatively reasonable liberal Republicans like Lindsey Graham, who gasps that Hagel would be “the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards the state of Israel in our nation’s history.”
By now we know that this arrogant insult to the Armed Forces, to America, to victims of Iranian-backed terrorism, and to our allies will not cost Obama a scintilla of support from his base — not even among Jews.
