Sen. Cornyn: Hagel "Out Of The Mainstream"
SEN. JOHN CORNYN (R-TX): Well, I think it’s not a matter of personalities. I’ve known Chuck Hagel. He is an honorable man. He has had a record of distinguished service, but he is profoundly wrong on a number of the most important national security issues that face our country today, like denying Iran nuclear weapons, like direct face-to-face negotiations with State Department designated terrorist organizations like Hamas, and calling into question our commitment to our principle ally in the middle east, Israel. Those are three things that strike me as Senator Hagel being out of the mainstream, and I believe just wrong when it comes to protecting the national security of the United States.
