    Israel is a rogue state, routinely committing atrocities.  And it gets away with it only because of the backing of the US.  Would it be so bad if Hagel actually had acknowledged this?  Now, before I get flamed into oblivion - I certainly know that the other side, from Hamas to the PLO to Iran and many other groups besides do not have clean hands either.  But there's no legal defense of, "Hey, they targeted civilians first!"  There's no excuse - you just don't do it.

    Of course, the US also commits war crimes on a regular basis.  And gets away with it because we have the biggest guns.
