As the article has noted the totally over the top obsession with Israel made one wonder whether Mr Hagel was signing up to be the Defence Minister of Israel .... the question would have made sense. These Senators should be impeached for their treachery. They were called to find a suitable Secretary of Defence for their own country but chose deliberately to ignore this calling. The US Secretary of Defence has a far larger obligation than the defence of Israel. And this especially given the way that Israel choses to spit in the face of the best interests of the US and of Israel itself.
