Hagel Confirmation Blocked For Now

Former Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel, President Obama's choice for defense secretary, testifies before the Senate Armed Services Committee during his confirmation hearing, on Capitol Hill in Washington recently. Senate Republicans were able to block Hagel's confirmation -- for now, via filibuster -- at a time of turmoil for the military with looming budget cuts, a fresh sign of North Korea's nuclear ambitions and drawdown of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

Question: Do you approve of the action of Senate Republicans in blocking Hagel's nomination until the Obama administration provides more information re: the Libya terrorist attack?
