Oppose Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense and John Brennan as CIA

To my Elected Representatives;
ref;Oppose Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense and John Brennan as CIA Director
I strongly Oppose Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense and John Brennan as CIA Director.
Hagel's prior words and actions lead me to believe that he will not serve the best interests of our military or those of our allies. Hagel's anti-Israel remarks and voting record lead me to believe that he is not an advocate of positive relations with Israel, our greatest ally in a crucially important region. His stance on Iran makes me question his understanding of Middle East issues altogether.
I believe there are far better and more qualified candidates to be the nation's Secretary of Defense - and CIA Director - two critical cabinet positions for our national security.
I encourage you to oppose these two nominations.
