Meet Robert Gates The New Boss…Same as The Old Boss

The Secret World of Robert Gates

Consortium News
Excerpt:
Robert Gates, George W. Bush’s choice to replace Donald Rumsfeld as Defense Secretary, is a trusted figure within the Bush Family’s inner circle, but there are lingering questions about whether Gates is a trustworthy public official….

For instance, the Russian government sent an intelligence report to a House investigative task force in early 1993 stating that Gates participated in secret contacts with Iranian officials in 1980 to delay release of 52 U.S. hostages then held in Iran, a move to benefit the presidential campaign of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

H.L.s Take:
This Gates guy is yet another Bush family crony, who will do whatever they tell him to. Nothing will change in Iraq with Gates in charge. The only way the new Congress will be able to do anything in Iraq is to refuse to stop paying for it, and don’t count on that.

    If you read Novak’s article you’ll get the impression that Gates might not be qualified, and Bush may prefer it that way. It’s quite obvious to me that Bush only wants someone who will push forward with his personal agenda… and Gates may just be the perfect guy for the job.

    I think shit for brains wants gates, because he is dumber than bush, and folks, you can’t
    get no dumber than that. This resident has held that office for 6 yrs, and he still can’t
    pick someone qualified for any position he tries for. Including judges.
