Hagel took it on the chin this weekend

Washington (CNN) – Gardening has become a contact sport, apparently.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel arrived Tuesday at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Syria sporting a noticeable bruise on his chin. CNN Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr reports the SecDef’s injury was a result of exercising his green thumb.

According to an aide, “Secretary Hagel slightly bruised his chin while doing a little yard work at home over the weekend.”

    He should get beat up. He is advocating something the people are against.

    On the chin, or up the wazoo, either way he's getting what he deserves. He's supposed to be a servant of the public. Seems most of them have forgotten this one rule. Lat I looked we didn't live in a monarchy.

    The people of America feel for the people of Syria but that is as far as it goes. No attack of any kind should be made by America! But they will no matter what Americans say.
    Why don't you poll the people of the American government why they call them selves our reps. but go against what we want or don't want. Ask the world what countries will come and rescue the American people and give us back our country?

    @rick, not everyone is against it. If these hearings were not televised they would go by faster and the politicians doing the questioning would be trying to grandstand as much.
    My personal thoughts is stay our of Syria but we don't know every bit/little detail that the President and some in congress know about that we are not privy to.
