Former Defense Secretary Hagel speaks at Mississippi College

Former U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel spoke at Mississippi College in Clinton Tuesday.

Hagel discussed President Donald Trump’s activity in the Middle East, and what the United States’ role should be in conflict.

“We have interest in the Middle East,” said Hagel. “We can’t solve the problems in the Middle East.. it has to come from the people of the Middle East, their leaders, their families and the citizens.”
