Former Senator Sam Nunn, distinguished professor in The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, and John Warner introduced Senator Chuck Hagel before the Senate Armed Services Committee at Hagel's Secretary of Defense confirmation hearing on January 31, 2013.

"From our service together on the Defense Policy Board, I know that Chuck has a very clear worldview, and that it aligns with the mainstream of U.S. foreign and defense policy and with President Obama," Nunn said in his statement. "Chuck Hagel believes that we must build and preserve American strength as a force for good in the world. He realizes that protecting our interests requires strong allies and friends and strong American leadership."

The hearing was broadcast on C-SPAN. The transcript and archived webcast may be accessed here.
