Sen.: Hagel seems ‘clueless’ on US policy toward Iran

WASHINGTON

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday that Chuck Hagel “seems clueless” on U.S. policy toward Iran, and he urged the Obama administration to reconsider its defense-secretary nominee.

In a statement, the South Carolina lawmaker stopped short of saying he would filibuster the choice if the president pushes forward as expected. No Democrat has come out in opposition to Hagel, and he picked up more support Tuesday as Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., announced that after meeting with Hagel, she would vote for the former two-term Republican senator and decorated Vietnam combat veteran.

Two Republican senators back Hagel, and several others, including Sen. John McCain, say they wouldn’t support a filibuster.
