Hagel to begin defense of record Thursday

In the context of Egypt exploding in unrest, Syria sinking into sectarian violence, and the growing Islamist threat in North Africa, on Thursday, January 31 former Senator Chuck Hagel -- who has been nominated to be the next Secretary of Defense -- will defend his record before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Hagel has been accused of being pro-Iran and anti-Israel. Will Hagel’s previous statements on Iran pose problems for this confirmation? Did Hagel refuse to call Hezbollah a terrorist organization? What about Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)? Did he urge President Bush not to bring up Iran’s nuclear program at a G8 meeting?

American Enterprise Institute (AEI) experts are available to answer these and other questions.
