Obama and Hagel

...
If Obama had taken Hagel’s advice in his first term he would not have imposed sanctions on Iran or gotten rid of ” don’t ask, don’t tell,” but he would have begun direct negotiations with Hamas. Yet Obama insists he values Hagel’s advice.

Which raises the question of exactly what advice from Hagel he values.  Perhaps he values their shared position of being dead wrong about the surge in Iraq.
