Hagel Embedded with Pro-Iranian Leftists

A new report today shows that President Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, former Senator Chuck Hagel, is in bed with the pro-Iranian leftist organizations that have been funding inside the beltway liberal propagandists.  From the Washington Free Beacon:

“Secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel is deeply embedded with a network of pro-Iran foreign policy groups that have lobbied to lift economic sanctions and boost U.S. engagement with Tehran.

Hagel sits on the board of Ploughshares Fund, a progressive foundation that has granted more than $2 million to organizations that employ some of Hagel’s most outspoken advocates, who favor lifting sanctions on Iran, oppose military action against its nuclear program, and hope to weaken the U.S.-Israel alliance.

Organizations that have received donations from Ploughshares include the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), the Center for American Progress (CAP), J Street, the National Security Network (NSN), and the Truman National Security Project, among others.”
