White House: Obama stands by Hagel for defense secretary

Published: 02.14.13, 18:31 / Israel News

President Barack Obama stands behind his nominee for defense secretary, former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, and Senate delays in Hagel's confirmation are "unconscionable," a White House spokesman said on Thursday.

"The president stands strongly behind Senator Hagel," Earnest said. "It does not send a favorable signal for Republicans in the United States Senate to delay a vote on the president's nominee, a nominee who is a member of their own party, to be the Secretary of Defense." (Reuters)
