Lugar: Chuck Hagel Attacks ‘Unfortunate And Unfair’

Former Sen. Dick Lugar (R-IN) on Wednesday reflected fondly on the time he spent working with Chuck Hagel in the Senate, telling MSNBC that the defense secretary nominee’s past policy positions were “legitimately held.”

“To selectively pull out of context all of what Chuck Hagel happened to say in those years seems to me to be unfortunate and unfair,” Lugar said of Hagel’s critics.
