I’m amazed at the attacks on Chuck Hagel as unfit for Defense Secretary because he was a mere “enlisted man.”
For instance, a National Review online columnist snipped: “First enlisted man to head the Pentagon? Who better to run America’s international war effort than a guy whose view of the military was through the wrong end of the telescope?”
So Hagel would be more qualified if he had spent his time playing “laptop bombardier” – like many of his critics?
Has anyone done a roundup of attacks on Hagel for being an “enlisted man”?
