Five things Chuck Hagel may be asked about

By Matt Smith

When the Senate Armed Services Committee is gaveled into session Thursday, Chuck Hagel is likely to face some sharp questions from many of his old colleagues.

If confirmed as secretary of defense, the one-time infantry sergeant and twice-wounded Vietnam veteran would be the first former enlisted man to lead the Pentagon. The former Republican senator from Nebraska gets his chance to answer questions Thursday morning during his confirmation hearing, and here are five subjects where he can expect them.

    Chuck Hagel is the right man for the job. What we don't need here is another run of the mill right-wing fanatic in our government. We have far too many of them already!

      I am a Lucifer worshiper and I support israel as do my brethren and my children.

      israel is a light upon the world and everyone should do all they can to let israel be israel forever.

      We pray every Saturday to our Lord and God Lucifer to bring His Light upon the world through israel.

      Let no man without the mark 666 have no food or drink. Instead, shine like israel . . . See the mark in israel's flag.

      We support you israel!
