One of the donors of Obama's favorite 'nominee' Hagel is 'Friends of Hamas'? HT: IsraelMatzav.Well, I'm shocked. Just totally shocked. Breitbart.com is reporting that the reason that Chuck Hagel doesn't want to disclose his foreign donor list is that one of the donors is 'Friends of Hamas.' And when a White House spokesperson was asked to comment, they hung up the phone without saying a word.
On Thursday, Senate sources told Breitbart News exclusively that they have been informed that one of the reasons that President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has not turned over requested documents on his sources of foreign funding is that one of the names listed is a group purportedly called “Friends of Hamas.”... Called for comment and reached via telephone, Associate Communications Director at the White House Eric Schultz identified himself, heard the question, was silent for several seconds, and then hung up the phone immediately without comment. Called back via the White House switchboard, Schultz’s phone rang through to his answering machine. Called on his cell phone, Schultz’s phone rang through to his answering machine.
And the Senate Democrats are going to vote to confirm this 'nominee'?Hmmmm....Remember : "2012 Democratic platform advocates talking to Hamas, a 'Palestinian' 'right of return' to 'Israel proper,' 1949 armistice lines and a capital where?" Read the full story here.
