TAKE ACTION - LETTER to SENATORS.
Next Tuesday (Feb. 26), a pivotal vote in the Senate could have a lasting and detrimental impact on the safety and security of our nation. As of the 21st of February, 14 U.S. senators have urged President Obama to withdraw this nomination.
On that day, former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) will again attempt to be confirmed as our nation's Secretary of Defense.
Send a strong message that Chuck Hagel is the wrong choice for America. Urge the Senate to reject Hagel and work to find a suitable candidate with the needed experience and understanding to fill this vital role.
America deserves better. Our military deserves better. Our allies deserve better.
Feel free to modify the text of the fax. Thanks for participating in this critical fax to the Senators!

SAMPLE LETTER TO SENATORS:
Since you will vote on February 26th on confirmation of Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) as the new Secretary of Defense, I want to express my displeasure with his nomination. Chuck Hagel's Senate history reveals the fact that his previous positions endanger America. This would pose an unacceptable risk to Americans and our allies abroad should he become the Defense Department head.
Senator Chuck Hagel has altered his stance on the following important issues:
1). Iranian sanctions (Hagel previously voted against sanctions)
2). Hezbollah, Yasser Arafat, the PLO and the Muslim Brotherhood (Hagel showed support for terrorism by refusing to condemn or criticize these groups)
3). Pro-Israel support (Hagel openly criticized Israel for defending itself against thousands of Hamas rocket attacks)
4). "Jewish Lobby" (Hagel opposed what he calls the "Jewish Lobby" but favors the Pro-Iran Lobby. In fact the American-Iranian Council group founder, Housang Amirahmadi, boasted that Hagel is "the pro-Iranian Lobby in the U.S.")
This new epiphany of intentions is hard to explain in light of his previous positions. Will the real Chuck Hagel please step forward and reveal his true identity?
Americans deserve a Secretary of Defense who will fight for our democracy and Judeo-Christian values. Most of all, we need a statesman who will clearly articulate his beliefs with his actions as well as his rhetoric. In this increasingly dangerous world, America needs to with our true democratic allies. We believe Chuck Hagel, based on his history, falls far short of having these important convictions.
