Hagel Claims Iran has “Legitimate, Elected” Government

Hagel has been accused of having close ties to the Iran Lobby and moments like these certainly do not help.

Iran’s election was fraudulent, that has been widely concluded by nearly everyone. And the legitimacy of a totalitarian regime whose elections are widely restricted is itself questionable at best.

The Revolutionary Guard has also been involved in attacks on American troops in Iraq and supplied explosives to the Taliban. It helped set up Hezbollah and then there have been suggestions that the Guard might be prepared to carry out terrorist attacks in the United States.

The Hagel hearings have turned into a trainwreck for Obama Inc. Hagel has clearly been prepared and drilled on the questions he will face, and that over-preparedness translates into long rambling and repetitive speeches are either an attempt to eat up time or to remember his prepared talking points.

In between those speeches, his actual views slip out, such as when he says that he supports Obama’s policy of containment on Iran, which is Obama’s actual policy, no matter how often he claims that it isn’t.

Incompetence isn’t a sin in Obama Inc, but PR incompetence is. Unless you’re Biden, you’re not supposed to just say stupid things in public. And unless you’re Obama, you’re not supposed to accidentally say what you really mean. This is an even bigger mistake for Hagel because he lacks the media skills of either man. He’s just a longtime politician stumbling through the world’s worst job interview.

    But he'll be appointed no matter how badly this goes, because what 0 wants (a fall guy, and best of all he's a Republican Fall Guy), 0 gets.

    To a radical revolutionary – albeit cloaked in Repub garb – it makes sense that Iran's Hitlerite regime has a legitimated gov't. Heck, Hagel surely thinks that Hamas & Hezbollah are legitimate too. But never mind that the Iranian regime was formed over the dead bodies of many of it people, as they grabbed power during the Islamic revolution!! The fact that they turned a western imbued, democracy seeking nation into a barbaric theocracy is of no consequence. Moreover, Brennan has the same sentiments. Ditto Kerry.

    Without a scintilla of a doubt, the quartet at the helm, Obama, Hagel, Brennan and Kerry, in tandem with Valerie Jarrett, is so frightening it leaves one breathless. Make no mistake, Jarrett bears the CLOSEST of scrutiny – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/02/valerie-jarre

    Shiver us timbers.

    He isn't nearly the first to make this claim. The Ahmedinijad was elected Democraticly comes from direct and common MSNBC talking points memos. They also believe Mursi was Democraticly elected.

    Hagel is a RINO and a pinhead. Being a native of Nebraska I am embarrassed by him.

    Bahahahahahaaaa, and Chuckie Hagel wants to be Secretary of which Mickey Mouse Club?

    Obama is bragging about the two Vietman combat vets he has put forth (Hagel and Kerry). With "friends" like these who needs enemies?

      "Obama is bragging about the two Vietman combat vets…"

      2 (more) notorious traitors.

    Great, Chucky. So was Hitler.

    If Hagel ACTUALLY said that,than he's an even bigger idiot than I thought he was.

    Mental derangement, moral debasement and societal disaster will be the high water mark
    of the Obama regeme. Total war against a free America is about to become obvious to
    the lamest brain in the Nation, lefties should rethink if they want any future, turn right
    or bend over on your prayer rug your leaders are bad people………………….William

    I have had 30 years of geriatric healthcare experience. Hagel answers like an early Alzheimers patient. Expect a diagnosis within 2 years.

    Alger Hiss was a communist mole in our government during FDR's regime. When Whittaker Chambers exposed Hiss for who he was, FDR thought that Chamber's charges were ludicrous. Already infiltrated by Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers in the Obama regime, Obama wants the icing on the cake to be Mr. Hagel. Does anybody need an explanation anymore for Obama's reticence (extremely uncharacteristic for the Mouth-In-Chief) during the Purple Revolution in Iran in 2009? Mr. Hagel's nomination to be Secretary of Defense is being publicly celebrated in Iran. Obama has made the Iranian mullahs very happy and optimistic about pursuing their nuclear weapons program with the ultimate goal of annihilating Israel and eventually the US as well (when the Madhi arrives).
