Call Senators in Support of Chuck Hagel nomination for Secretary of Defense
Submitted by Robert Naiman on 26 December 2012 - 2:07pm
Diplomacy advocate and war skeptic Chuck Hagel is reported to be President Obama's first choice for Secretary of Defense. Hagel would work to end the war in Afghanistan, avoid war with Iran, and cut the Pentagon budget. Right-wing neocons are organizing a smear campaign to try to scuttle the nomination. Urge your Senators to speak up for Chuck Hagel's nomination as Secretary of Defense.
There is a petition at MoveOn here:
