Never would have predicted we would one day have a Defense Secretary endorsed by both Farrakhan and Iran.
[F]arrakhan said he believes the American government also wanted to see black leaders like himself go away.
“You killed my brother [Gadhafi], and now you got the same thing in your mind for me,” Farrakhan thundered as the crowd rose to its feet applauding. “You want to put your hands on me. In fact, you’re plotting it as I’m speaking.”
Regarding Hagel, Farrakhan said the Senate was holding up his confirmation because Hagel did not express unconditional support for Israel. He said Israeli lobbyists are applying pressure to senators to reject Hagel.
Farrakhan said the country needs a Defense secretary like Hagel, who will follow his own conscience.
