Chuck Hagel, Barack Obama's nominee to head the defense department, said in his confirmation hearing Thursday that he doesn't "know much" about military programs and technology. "I've said I don't know enough about it," Hagel said, in a response to Maine senator Angus King. "There are a lot of things I don't know about. I, if confirmed, intend to know a lot more than I do. I will have to." Watch the video below:

Earlier in the day, anonymous senators on both sides of the aisle told CNN reporter Dana Bash that they were in disbelief at Hagel's unpreparedness for Thursday's hearing.
