Dan Senor was the "mouthpiece" for the disastrous CPA government in Baghdad. This shifty eyed neocon front man was on "Chuck" Todd's morning MSNBC show today to do what he could to stop Senator Hagel's progress towards the Pentagon. Todd, himself, is a thinly disguised opponent of Hagel's nomination.
When he wasn't rolling his eyes or smirking over the very idea of Hagel, Senor was busy telling us all that "there is a 'consensus' on Israel in Washington" and that Hagel is outside it.
Yes, there is such a "consensus." It is a consensus that results from decades of intimidation, illegal finance contributions and suppression of the opinions of anyone who does not accept the primacy of Israel in US policy. Hagel is not intimidated. His appointment to be Secretary of Defense would threaten the "consensus."
That is what people like Senor are afraid of. pl
