Chuck Hagel's Biography

Charles Timothy "Chuck" Hagel (born October 4, 1946) is a former United States Senator from Nebraska. A member of the Republican Party, he was first elected in 1996 and was reelected in 2002. In 2009, he was elected as Chairman of the Atlantic Council.

Washington: US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel now regrets and apologizes to a professor of Indian descent, State Dept. said Saturday, after he seemed to jokingly query if the prof was a member of the Taliban?   Hagel's spokesman re-iterated the off-hand remark, which came after a speech at the U.of  Nebraska on Wednesday, was not intended to refer to anyone in the audience or to the academic's Indian heritage.

Hagel's feeble attempt at humour appeared to fall flat, as judging by the long pause that followed, according to a video of the gaff broadcast on the Pentagon channel.
