US: Pro-Israel group to air ad against Hagel appointment

The US-based Emergency Committee for Israel will air an ad on Thursday against the appointment of Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense, claiming his opinions on how American should deal with the Iranian nuclear threat differ from President Barack Obama's statements on the matter.


The 30-minute as mentions all of Hagel's statements on Iran, including his claim that a military strike on the Islamic Republic was impractical. (Yitzhak Benhorin, Washington)
