On Wednesday the Senate canceled a vote on the confirmation of former Sen. Chuck Hagel to become the next Secretary of Defense. Today, Ben Shapiro reports on a possible reason for that delay.

On Thursday, Senate sources told Breitbart News exclusively that they have been informed that one of the reasons that President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has not turned over requested documents on his sources of foreign funding is that one of the names listed is a group purportedly called “Friends of Hamas.”

Breitbart called the White House to ask about this development. White House Associate Communications Director Eric Schultz went silent, then hung up. Repeated attempts to call him back went to voicemail.

Even more disturbing than the possibility that Hagel has accepted funding from Friends of Hamas (Hamas is the terrorist group that governs the Palestinian territories), is the possibility that President Obama knew of the connection, but nominated Hagel to the nation’s top defense post anyway.
