Cheney: Obama Wants To Do "Serious Damage To Military Capabilities"
"With respect to Chuck Hagel and - and Brennan, at Defense and C.I.A. - just in the last week, their performance in front of the committees that have to confirm them has been pretty poor. And that's, you know, not my judgment. That's the judgment, as well, of senators on both sides of the aisle. My guess is, if you look at what the President's motives are for picking Chuck Hagel, I think he wants a Republican to go be the - the foil, if you will, for what he wants to do to the Defense Department, which is I think to do serious, serious damage to our military capabilities," former Vice President Dick Cheney said in an interview with Charlie Rose of CBS News.
