Gates stated in an interview last August with Fred Kaplin that he plans to retire in Jan 2011. Gates stated that he wanted to give Obama the opportunity to appoint a new defense chief without the pressure of a presidential election. Gates has served in some capacity to all Presidents since Nixon.

But what has Gates, a Republican, accomplished during his reign.

Gut the military, downsize our weapon systems, fired our fine top generals, eliminated the Joint Forces Command, supported the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, backed the action of putting women on the frontlines, etc., etc.

Great going Robert!!

I’m sure there are many other little dirty actions Gates has been involved with....Also, as former Chief of the CIA, Gates is also well aware of Obama’s hidden secrets.

Bye Robert
