Hagel Assures US Troops That He Has No Idea What He’s Doing

If Biden decides to run for president in 2016, it is my earnest hope that he picks Hagel to be his VP. The sight of them together on the campaign trail will surely be an inspiration to us all.

During a Southeast Asia visit, Hagel assures American soldiers that he has [1] no idea if the sanctions are good for anything, only to then assure them that the sanctions are working. If Hagel has no idea whether the sanctions will work, then what is his basis for saying that they are working? In what sense are they working if Iran continues moving toward a nuclear weapon?

To paper over this confusing ambiguity, Hagel assures them that we have time. Actually the Iranians have time and they don’t need that much more of it.
