several around the table had said that therefore Hagle was cozy with Iran.
McCaskell went off and said to Inhoffe, if some radical organization endorses YOU
is that then evidence that you are cozy with them, or do you have the right to
clarify you object to their positions?
Inhoffe looked....well.....embarassed. For sure there is something somewhere someone

Before she ripped into Inhoffe, she went OFF for a good while about how this committee
had improved 5-6 other Secretaries of War, always relying on the same whole-committee-approved
set of questions (for example, requesting documentation of personal financial payments received
that exceeded $5000 over the past two years; one person was insisting Hagle do 5 years and
Hagle did not comply).
She began by restating that Obama won the election, even though some in the room find that
hard to deal with.
