Hagel in 2007: Israel Controls the State Department

This guy does not like Israel, huh?

Best part of this: The account of Chuck Hagel’s anti-Israeli statement was reported and confirmed by a Hagel supporter, who evidently approves of what the nominee said. In fact, the guy wants Hagel to run for president.

The 2007 speech was delivered at Rutgers University but was closed to the press. It was apparently a speech intended to test the waters for a presidential bid. Spokesmen for Rutgers and Hagel have yet to comment.
