No wonder Obama likes this clown.
Loony former Senator Chuck Hagel told a Senate Committee in 2011 that terrorists attack because they “lack hope.” Then he went on to say the Palestinian people “have been chained down for many, many years.”

World Net Daily reported:
Terrorism is not a belief but instead is a response to despair and a lack of hope, argued Chuck Hagel in unreported remarks during a 2007 Senate hearing.
“But when people have no hope, when there’s despair, little else matters,” said Hagel.
He continued: “And this is not about terrorists don’t like freedom. Tell that to the Palestinian people who have been chained down for many, many years. Terrorism is not a strategy, it’s a tactic. Terrorism is not a plan. It’s not a belief like democracy or monarchy. It’s a tactic.”
Hagel was speaking at a Jan. 24, 2007, Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing on Iraq.
But, don’t worry. Hagel says he supports Israel today.
