Wednesday at the Aspen Institute’s “Washington Ideas Forum,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said we are living through, “historic, defining times,” that will result in a, “new world order.”
When questioned about the ongoing global chaos by the national correspondent for The Atlantic, James Fallows Hagel said, “I think we are living through one of these historic, defining times. I think we are seeing a new world order.”
“What we’re seeing in the Middle East with ISIL is going to require a steady, long-term effort. It’s going to require coalitions of common interests, which we are forming,” he added.
