Stand Up To Neocons Smearing Chuck Hagel
Enough is enough. It's time to stand up against neocon swiftboating of Vietnam Veteran Chuck Hagel, and let President Obama know that we will support his nomination of Hagel, if it happens. Neocon architects of the Iraq war, like William Kristol, are launching an outrageous, offensive smear campaign against Senator Hagel, in an attempt to scare the President from even nominating him.
We, the undersigned, strongly reject the neocon smears being launched against Vietnam Veteran and former Senator Chuck Hagel. We will strongly back his nomination for Secretary of Defense, should you choose to nominate him. In fact, we urge you to not be deterred from nominating him, simply because of the right-wing noise machine.
The reason they're swiftboating Senator Hagel is clear. Chuck Hagel, as a Vietnam Veteran, would put troops first. He has a record of challenging neocon dreams of preemptive use of force – and winning that debate. He has a record of challenging wasteful Pentagon spending, taking on the military-industrial complex, to ensure our defense dollars are responsibly spent on equipment we actually need. As Defense Secretary, he would do the same, and thoroughly embarrass and expose Kristol and his neocon buddies.
It would be unfortunate for our Troops and our nation if we allowed neocons to rob us of a potentially great Secretary of Defense. We urge you to not give in to them.
