GOP Sees Hagel As Friend Of Iran
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Senate Republicans have expressed alarm that Defense
Secretary-designate Chuck Hagel would abandon the U.S. campaign to stop Iran
from producing nuclear weapons.
In one of the bitterest nomination fights in years, Republicans have
warned that Hagel was a supporter of Iranian interests to enable Teheran to
complete its nuclear weapons program. The senators raised the prospect that
Hagel might have received funding from elements aligned with the Teheran
regime over the last few years.
