This is a Secretary of Defense?

Toward the end of his SecDef nomination hearing in the Senate at the end of last week, Chuck Hagel offered this assurance [emphasis added]:

A number of questions were asked of me today about specific programs: submarine programs, different areas of technology and acquisitions, and our superior technology.  And I’ve said, I don’t know enough about it. I don’t.  There are a lot of things I don’t know about. If confirmed, I intend to know a lot more than I do.  I will have to.

Huh?  On what is he waiting?  Why doesn’t he know more now?  He’s known for months that he’s up for this job.  He’s been a critic of DoD for his political career.

As to his last sentence, well, NSS.
