WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Chuck Hagel said he backed the US policy of preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon as he testified on Thursday before a skeptical Senate panel considering his nomination to be President Barack Obama's next secretary of defense.

Hagel, a former Republican senator and decorated Vietnam veteran, broadly defended his record on national security issues after a public campaign against his nomination by critics seeking to portray him as soft on Iran and anti-Israel.

"No one individual vote, quote, or statement defines me, my beliefs, or my record," Hagel told the lawmakers in prepared remarks. "My overall worldview has never changed: that America has and must maintain the strongest military in the world."

It was disgusting how senators attacked senator Hagel on previous statements he had made in regards to Israel and its influence. Amazing , how AMERICAN senators , attack a patriotic senator , who served his country well and who puts the interest of his nation first , and throw him to the dogs , as if the bar for being a good patriotic American is how one supports Israel , right or wrong...Proves exactly the point that Hagel made that people catch hell if they criticize Israel and its policy.

1 ) JoeUSA / USA - this is precisely what is great about America. Rather then having a dictator appoint someone our ELECTED officials can fully vet him, no holds barred. Those are people you and I elected. That IS AMERICA!
