White House expects Senate confirmation of Hagel

Published: 02.01.13, 21:06 / Israel News

The White House on Friday dismissed criticism of Chuck Hagel's hesitant congressional testimony and insisted that it expects the US Senate to confirm him as defense secretary.


One day after Hagel was roughed up in a grueling confirmation hearing, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Hagel did a "fine job" and the Obama administration would be stunned if Republicans tried to block the nomination of a decorated Vietnam combat veteran and former 12-year Republican senator.
