Why Does Chuck Hagel trust Fidel Castro?

hagelfidel2

Why did this Republican Senator accept the word of a Stalinist dictator whose lifelong dream was to nuke Hagel’s homeland over that of the most loyal Republicans in modern U.S. history: (Americans of Cuban heritage)?

And how can a Republican who came of political age during the Cold War, and who actually fought Communists in Viet-Nam, have been unaware that Communist regimes can apply unseen pressure to their inmates? Can a prospective U.S. Secretary of Defense have taken at face value the word of the same Stalinist dictator who declared:

“Again I stress I am not a communist. And Communists have absolutely no influence in my nation!” (Fidel Castro, April 1959)

“Political power does interest me in the least! And I will never assume such power!” (Fidel Castro, April 1959)

“What!” Nikita Khrushchev gasped, as recalled by his son Sergei, “Is he (Fidel Castro) proposing that we start a nuclear war? That we launch missiles from Cuba?”

“Of course I knew the missiles were nuclear- armed,” responded Fidel Castro to Robert McNamara during a meeting in 1992. “That’s precisely WHY I urged Khrushchev to launch them.”

But it appears that we’ll soon entrust our nation’s security to a U.S. Secretary of Defense who wholeheartedly trusted Fidel Castro.

Our friends at Townhall help disseminate items about Chuck Hagel mostly unknown outside Miami-Dade.

(pero fijense que tipo mas DESCARA'O(!!!) este Fontova! El articulo tien casi NADA que ver con Chuck Hagel! Pero este sinverguenZON(!!!) lo pone en el titulo para enganar a los lectores Americanos que el bien sabe tienen ningun interes en asuntos Cubanos!)
