Confirming Chuck Hagel for secretary of defense may harm U.S. defense considering his record, words of praise from the Communist Party, and ties to far-left progressive organizations. 

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s Thursday confirmation hearing of John Brennan, President Obama's nominee for head of the Central Intelligence Agency, was more gracious than grueling.

Some observers are mystified by Chuck Hagel’s pathetic showing at his Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, but there should be no mystery about it.
