During his Senate confirmation hearings, former Senator Chuck Hagel R-Neb. couldn't name any of the "dumb things" that he said the "Jewish lobby" forced the Senate to do.

Hagel, who is President Obama's choice for Secretary of Defense was pressed on his comments during his confirmation hearing this afternoon by Sen. Lyndsey Graham R-S.C.

Hagel raised the ire of Israel supporters after he said in a 2006 interview that "the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here" and that he "always argued against some of the dumb things they do."
