Chuck Hagel met with criticism about Defense position

Posted: Updated:

As expected, Chuck Hagel is facing tough criticism from both parties about his Secretary of Defense nomination.

Today Hagel is trying to set the record straight on his position on Iran, telling senior staff at the Pentagon that he backs strong international sanctions and believes all options should be on the table.

Senators across the board have questioned Hagel's toughness on Iran and his support for Israel.

Today Hagel told staff that his views have been misrepresented.

Hagel's first step will be making it through the Senate Armed Forces Committee, who will hold hearings in the coming weeks.
