Robert Gates?

I'll have another post on Rumsfeld's resignation later today, but for now, let me just say this:

Robert Gates?

Where does Bush find these guys? Does he visit the Home for Elderly Republican Foreign Policy Strategists everytime he needs to make an appointment.

Gates was a top CIA figure during the Reagan and first Bush administrations and a key supporter of the Contras. Not a nice man.

I don't know that Gates will be a better Secretary of Defense than Rumsfeld, but as I'll point out in my later post, to be worse would be unprecendented in American history.
