Chuck Hagel Being Vetted [View all]



Chuck Hagel Being Vetted

The former Nebraska Republican senator is being considered for a national security position.

Hagel, who co-chairs President Barack Obama’s Intelligence Advisory Board, which provides independent advice on the effectiveness of the intelligence community, could be in contention for either secretary of state or secretary of defense, people familiar with the vetting process say.

Hagel, a moderate realist on foreign policy, would be a comfortable ideological fit for the president. He has publicly supported many of the administration’s foreign-policy moves from his perch at Georgetown University, while often excoriating the GOP for what he sees as a takeover by “the extreme right.”

Something that the articles that came out today did not mention is that it is a possibility that Hagel is being vetted to be Director of the CIA.
