U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement on the nomination of Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense.

"Chuck Hagel is a good man, but these are dangerous times. What kind of signal are we sending to the Iranians when our nominee for Secretary of Defense seems clueless about what our policy is? I hope the Obama Administration will reconsider his nomination."
