Senator Cruz Grills Hagel With Out-Of-Context Al Jazeera Clip

The new Texas senator claimed the clip showed Hagel agreeing with a caller to CSPAN that Israel was guilty of war crimes, but it was out of context.

The “war crimes” part is basically an aside in a longer, rambling speech, the style of which is familiar to anyone who watches C-SPAN call-in shows, that ends with a question about whether the world needs strong moral leadership — which is the sentiment Hagel is saying he agreed with. The caller also used the example of the Sri Lankan government cracking down on the Tamils.
