Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had some less than flattering words after President Obama’s Defense Secretary nominee, former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel’s appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

In an official statement from the South Carolina Senator Tuesday:

“Chuck Hagel is a good man, but these are dangerous times.  What kind of signal are we sending to the Iranians when our nominee for Secretary of Defense seems clueless about what our policy is?  I hope the Obama Administration will reconsider his nomination.”

The video below shows Senator Lindsey Graham pressing former Senator Chuck Hagel during his confirmation hearing in the Senate Armed Services Hearing for Secretary of Defense.
