Former Sen. Chuck Hagel’s confirmation as Obama’s new secretary of defense has been placed on hold, pending Hagel’s release of documents relating to his sources of foreign income. Thus far, Hagel has refused, although the information was requested via email prior to his Jan. 31 confirmation hearing. A letter following up on the request was signed by 25 senators and delivered to him. We may now know why Hagel has not yet delivered on the request.

In an exclusive report citing several Senate sources, Breitbart News reported Thursday that Hagel has been reticent in disclosing the list of foreign donors because it includes a group calling itself “Friends of Hamas.”

Called for comment, Eric Schultz, associate communications director at the White House, identified himself, heard the question, was silent for several seconds, and then hung up the phone immediately without comment, Breitbart News reported. When Schultz was called back via the White House switchboard and on his cellphone, the calls went to voicemail.

Hamas, which means “enthusiasm” in Arabic, is an Islamic resistance movement that governs the Gaza Strip via Sharia law and includes a military wing. The governments of Israel, the United States, Canada, the European Union and Japan classify Hamas as a terrorist organization.
