Senators Only Asked Chuck Hagel About Iran And Israel

During Chuck Hagel’s marathon Senate Armed Services Committee hearing today, questioners returned to a handful of issues again and again, especially Hagel’s record on Iran and Israel.

The word cloud above is based on a transcript of the hearing. Next to the word “Hagel,” the biggest ones are “Iran” and “Israel.” Afghanistan doesn’t even make it into the cloud.
