Hagel Calls Bush's Use of Petraeus Dishonest

Retiring Sen. Chuck Hagel tells Bill Maher why the president’s exploitation of Gen. Petraeus is “not only a dirty trick, but it’s dishonest, it’s hypocritical, it’s dangerous and irresponsible. The fact is, this is not Petraeus’ policy, it’s Bush’s policy.”

Hagel, who says he’s not running because he is “looking for some honest work,” also argues that the Iraq war — and the decision to continue the war — will go down as “the biggest foreign policy blunder in the history of our country.”
