The Obama Appeasers
By Donald A. Moskowitz

President Obama’s recent picks for Secretary of Defense-Chuck Hagel and Secretary of State-John Kerry call into question Obama’s judgment and wisdom and his ability to lead this country.

Chuck Hagel opposed the successful troop surge in Iraq and he wants to prematurely pull troops out of Afghanistan.  He believes in placating Communist Cuba and wants to negotiate with the terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah.  Hagel is committed to negotiating with Iran on its nuclear development program.  He wants to make dramatic cuts to our military, which will weaken our national security posture.  Hagel will be in lockstep with Obama and will continue the policies of appeasement.

John Kerry, a decorated Vietnam War veteran with medals that Swift Boat commanders stated he did not deserve, will march to Obama’s tune of appeasement.  Kerry, in Congressional hearings, turned on his fellow Vietnam War veterans.  He could be another apologist for the Obama administration.

As a former Navy enlisted man and officer I question the ability of the Obama/Hagel/Kerry threesome to lead this country from a position of strength in the world.  I do not have confidence in the capabilities of these key individuals to promote our national security.
