Editor’s note : Very revealing and educational, if not downright nauseatingly embarrassing the way the Senate Chief Zionist and Netanyahu Rep, Lindsey Graham, interrogated General Dempsey.
Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and JCS Vice Chair Adm. James Winnefeld, Jr. appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee during a reappointment confirmation hearing. Both are seeking second terms.
C-Span — The Senate Armed Services Committee heard from General Martin Dempsey and Admiral James Winnefeld, both of whom had been nominated to remain in their senior military posts on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. During one tense exchange on Syria with Senator McCain, General Dempsey did not rule out the use of force in Syria, but declined to give his own opinion.
Other topics included Afghanistan, Syria, Egypt, Iran, Russia and sex assaults in the military.
Editor’s note : For those who did not see the unaired Saturday Night Live skit on Chuck Hagel’s confirmation, wish they’d aired it — very critical of the Senate’s deference to Israel:
