Obama to name former Hagel for defense secretary

Published: 01.06.13, 17:34 / Israel News

President Barack Obama will nominate former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel to be his defense secretary, and an announcement could come on Monday, a congressional Democratic aide said on Sunday.


The choice would likely set up a confirmation battle in the Senate over whether the former Nebraska senator strongly supports US ally Israel. Hagel also has been criticized for comments he made on sanctions on Iran for its nuclear program. (Reuters)
