GOP Senator: Hagel 'Seems Clueless' on Policy Toward Iran
The confirmation of Chuck Hagel for Secratery of Defense has been met with its fair share of opposition from Washington.
The latest voice of protest comes from Republican Senator Lindsey Graham who urged President Barack Obama on Tuesday to reconsider his nomination of Hagel saying he "seems clueless" on U.S. policy toward Iran.
In a statement, the senator warned that Hagel is not right for the position, saying, "Chuck Hagel is a good man, but these are dangerous times."
