He's nominated to be the Secretary of Defense, he'll execute the policies of the President... if you were asking whether or not the guy was someone for whom I would vote as a represenative or Senator, the answer is probably not... but this guy is not nominated for those jobs. He can't go to war on his own, he doesn't decide whether or not the US imposes unilateral sanctions, and he can't tell the sun not to come up in the morning, you disingenuous fark.

If this was actually about speaking the truth rather than a meaningless dog and pony show, Hagel would have said "All of you are intimidated by the Jewish Lobby.   That's why I'm sitting here answering 9 hours worth of questions about how willing I am to suck Israel's cawk when called upon as opposed to how I would protect Americans as Secretary of Defense.    This whole circus proceeding is nothing but an awe inspiring and frightening display of the influence and muscle that Israel has over the American Government and how America is nothing more than their little biatch.   Usually even the cheapest whore gets left cab fare on the night stand for a taxi ride home, we're the whore that actually pays the john."

From the real Washington Post report of the Hagel confirmation hearing:

Hagel faced relatively few nuanced questions about the Afghan war or terrorist threats. Afghanistan was mentioned just 27 times, and al-Qaeda only twice, while Israel got 178 mentions and Iran 169.

From those numbers alone, I would suspect that the hearing was 90% GOP grandstanding and 10% substance.

DIAF that is as hot as the one you started on the USS Forrestal that killed and maimed dozens of Navy shipmen.

McCain's aircraft was next to the A-4 that got hit by the rocket not the one that launched it.
Not sure if serious....

Yes, I was serious. The story I read was that McCain, in a fit of impatient, uncontrolled rage, fired the thrusters/afterburners whatever (I'm completely unfamiliar with jet plane terminology) on his jet and ignited the jet behind his.

A rocket got fired accidentally by an F-4 (McCain flew the A-4) because the jackass in charge of the aircraft carrier decided to remove the safety pins that keep dangerous voltage surges from going to the weapons as the plane is switched from ship power to its own power, as a way of speeding up take offs and landings.  When the backup safety measure failed one of the rockets was launched from an F-4 into the wing mounted disposable fuel tank of an A-4 next to John McCain's aircraft.  The rocket did not detonate but the violent collision caused the fuel to ignite.  McCain actually tried to rescue another pilot before the bombs loaded onto their planes(which were WWII surplus and made from a very dangerous unstable explosive mix that **surprise** no one got told about) started bursting apart and exploding.

/dude may be an asshole politician but lets not start making things up.
//not sure when he gave up his gigantic brass balls to become a shiatty right wing cheerleader, it's sad.


I felt much the same about accusations that Bush 41 was a wimp. I was no fan of his, but he piloted a TBM Avenger to a heavily defended target, and completed his bomb run, resulting in damage to the TBM so severe that he had to ditch near the island. He narrowly escaped being captured by the Japanese, and was picked up by a U.S. submarine. Whatever he was, the elder Bush was not a wimp.

Hagel doesn't have to be brilliant, but he does have to have some integrity.  There are some pretty good people behind him to execute the downsizing of the military - which better proceed at a slow pace, lest we get ahead of ourselves. (The Defense Industry downsizing does have a lot of secondary effects, similar to what happens when the Auto Industry was in jeopardy.) He seems to have enough sense to understand that Iraq was a poor idea, after going along like everyone else - at least he had the nuts to say so before most other Republicans did.  He seems to think that the State Department should have the lead in dealing with Iran, which I agree with.  And the Pro-Israeli lobby should have doubters - they certainly have plenty of "Yes" men.  Having a couple of "Let's hold on here" folks is not unwarranted.

He's not a great choice but he's far from the worst choice.  People seem to forget that John Kerry was President Obama's first choice for SECDEF.  I think that Republicans are thrilled that a Democrat from the Senate was lost to fill a cabinet position, and would have loved to see another Democrat leave the Senate for another role, such as SECDEF.  Hagel is actually a Republican fall guy, in that sense.

The hard work of executing policy change (Gays in the military and Women in combat) has turned the corner, and there will be folks who have been studying these issues for years behind him; they were there before he gets there and they'll be there after he's gone.  All he has to do is keep the wheels turning and show that he's steady and relatively dependable.
