Sources: Obama to nominate Hagel as Pentagon chief

Published: 01.06.13, 22:43 / Israel News

Former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel is President Barack Obama's pick to be the next defense secretary. That's the word from a senior Obama administration official and a source close to the process for selecting a successor to retiring Pentagon chief Leon Panetta.


They spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the imminent nomination. Hagel is a decorated Vietnam combat veteran and a former Nebraska senator. His path to Senate confirmation might not be completely smooth. Former colleagues say he'll face tough questions about his stands on Israel and Iran, among other issues. (AP)
