Senator Grassley made the following comment about his votes against the nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel to serve as Secretary of Defense.

"My opposition is based on doubts about Senator Hagel's views on America's relationship with Israel, his position against U.S. sanctions against Iran, and his underestimation of the security threat posed by the dangerous regime in Iran. In addition, Senator Hagel wasn't transparent and forthcoming, as he said he would be, in that he didn't allow access to speeches and other records of his that might provide a clearer picture of his positions on these major national security issues."
