This maybe Hagel's biggest challenge

Washington Post:

Hagel pledges straight talk, loyalty to troops on first day at Pentagon

Watching him try to explain what he had said in the past and then having to repeatedly back track during his confirmation questioning makes you wonder if Hagel is really capable of "straight talk."  How can he claim loyalty to the troops when he has denigrated their efforts in Iraq?   A guy who was dead wrong about the surge and then could not even admit it is incapable of straight talk.

The troops deserve better than Chuck Hagel.
