The US Senate Armed Services Committee holds a confirmation vote on the appointment of Chuck Hagel as the country's next defense secretary.
The vote follows Hagel's confirmation hearing on January 31, during which the former US Senator from Nebraska and a decorated Vietnam veteran outlined his views on national security issues.
At the hearing, Hagel said he believes America "must engage — not retreat — in the world," and insisted that his record is consistent on that point.
