Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel has refused to turn over to the Senate details of foreign funding of the groups he’s been involved with since leaving the Senate. He’s obviously hiding something. Perhaps he doesn’t want them finding out about how he received funding from a foreign entity called “Friends of Hamas.”
On Thursday, Senate sources told Breitbart News exclusively that they have been informed that one of the reasons that President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has not turned over requested documents on his sources of foreign funding is that one of the names listed is a group purportedly called “Friends of Hamas.”
Yesterday, 25 senators sent a letter to Hagel demanding information on his foreign funding.

Of course, the White House had no comment. I doubt they won’t comment on the news that Hagel has been endorsed by the Communist Party USA either.
After reportedly receiving support from Iran, Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s defense secretary nominee, has yet another endorsement to add to his resume, this one coming from the Communist Party USA.
People’s World, the Communist Party USA’s official magazine, touted Hagel as “represent[ing] the more sober elements who have called in our national discourse for rejection of the old cold war tactics, the unilateralism and the continual push for wars all over the world.”
The magazine’s labor editor, John Wojcik, slammed the ”neocon” U.S. Senate for trying to “force Hagel to disavow his opposition to what they call the ‘successful’ surges in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
A People’s World blast email further lamented Hagel “is still the subject of controversy due to some mild criticism he made of the State of Israel.”
Wojcik contended “it was the U.S. Senate, not President Obama’s nominee, Chuck Hagel, that fell down on the job at the hearings.”
“It was allowed to become a place for right-wing grandstanding and unacceptable efforts to rewrite history,” he continued. (Read More)
Isn’t it lovely how the CPUSA rhetoric so closely matches the rhetoric coming out of the White House?
