Elliott Abrams: 'Hagel will be confirmed, but he will be a weaker secretary of defense'

http://972mag.com/elliott-abrams-hagel-will-be-confirmed-but-he-will-be-a-weaker-secretary-of-defense/66487/

In an interview to the Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth, the former neoconservative diplomat criticizes Hagel for his “I am an American senator” remark.

Israeli journalist Nahum Barnea has today a short interview with Elliott Abrams on the issue of Chuck Hagel’s nomination to Secretary of Defense, which various Israeli advocacy groups have opposed.

Abrams opens by explaining why he believes Hagel is an anti-Semite, referring to Hagel’s past remark on “the Jewish Lobby” (by the way, this is the term Israelis use too, including most of the press. Examples: here, here, here, here, here, here).

1. And what limits are placed on a 'weaker secretary of defense?'

Wait! I'm thinking!

2. Hard to believe how much trouble you can get into as a Republican Senator by

declaring that you serve primarily American interests.

3. GOP would probably prefer someone like Rumsfeld, he screwed everything up quiet well.
