Hagel Leading Republican Voice Against War

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday passed a non binding resolution to oppose the decision to send more troops to Iraq.

Chuck Hagel was co-sponsor of the resolution. He said last night, that on November 7 last year the people made it clear that they wanted a change of direction on Iraq. This is an issue that people need to stand up on Hagel said.

The resolution will go before the full Senate next week, which Hagel says needs to happen - that people need to be on the record on this.

Hagel made it clear that the President cant govern on this issue without the support of the American people.
