There is "not one shred of evidence that I'm anti-Israeli," former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel told the Lincoln Journal Star, in an interview published immediately after he was nominated by US President Barack Obama as the next US secretary of defense.

In his first statements since Obama's formal announcement, Hagel insisted that an accurate assessment of his record would demonstrate "unequivocal, total support for Israel," and panned critics for "completely distort[ing]" his positions.
