Here is video of Martin Indyk, former U.S. Ambassador to Israel, now of the Brookings Institution. Indyk was commenting on whether he believes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will act unilaterally to attack Iran in order to stop their drive to obtain Nuclear Weapons. He does not believe Netanyahu will do so, unless it becomes clear President Obama had abandoned his pledge to prevent Iran from developing Nuclear Weapons. So, he thinks it is really Obama’s decision, and that it would have far less consequences if the U.S. stopped Iran rather than Israel taking military action.
Here is video of Sen. Lindsey Graham today on Fox News where he spoke against President Obama’s nomination of Sen. Chuck Hagel to be Secretary of Defense. Graham reminded everyone that by picking Hagel, “You’re picking somebody to be Secretary of Defense that the Iranians have applauded.” You don’t need to know much more to know what a terrible pick that is.
Here is video of Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin on Fox & Friends today where he expressed his concerns about confirming Obama’s nomination of Sen. Chuck Hagel to be Secretary of Defense. Cardin’s concern centers on Hagel’s opposition to sanctions on Iran and the kind of advice he might give to President Obama.
