Six Years Ago, Chuck Hagel Told the Truth About Iraq
January 4th, 2013
by Michael Moore

Now, I’m not saying Hagel is the best qualified choice for Secretary of Defense. (That would be Andrew Bacevich.) I’m not even saying he’s the best qualified Senator or ex-Senator. (There are 19 of those – the surviving senators who voted against invading Iraq in the fall of 2002. Hagel voted yes.)

But what I am saying is: thank you, Chuck Hagel. We may not agree on much, but we agree that politicians should tell the truth about war and peace and life and death. We’re all in your debt for that – especially since, when it comes to Iraq and oil, President Obama’s first Republican Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, couldn’t manage it.
