Senator to Hagel: Why Have the Iranians Endorsed You?


senator-jim-inhofe[Video below.] Senator Jim Inhofe asked Chuck Hagel today why the Iranians had endorsed his nomination for secretary of defense:

“Given that Iran, the people – I’m quoting right now from Iran – people of the Middle East, the Muslim region and North Africa, people of these regions hate America from the bottom of their heart,” said Inhofe. “It further said Israel is a cancerous tumor in the heart of the Islamic world. They further said Iran’s warriors are ready and willing to wipe Israel off the map. The question I’d like to ask you, and you can answer for the record if you’d like, why do you think the Iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be the Secretary of Defense?”

Hagel responded, “I have a difficult enough time with American politics, Senator. I have no idea, but thank you. And I’ll be glad to respond further for the record.”

  1. Guess Hagel couldnt come up with an answer to that dynamite question? Is Iran and Muslim extremists want him as Defense Minister, should not we be worried and in fear of the future?

  2. don’t u understand that Obama was planted by the Arabs into the White House and now he’s surrounding himself by all Arab lovers so he can do what he wants like send the most sophisticated weapons to the Terrorist Morsi and blink against Iran while stabbing Bibi in the back
