Gates Stays on at Pentagon

I find it interesting that Obama decided to leave Gates in charge at the Pentagon. Just remember how the Pentagon report on Saddam was suppressed by the main stream media. Someone at the Pentagon put No Smoking Gun on page one of the Summary of the report. The mainstream media picked up on it and never read past page one of the report. Why? Because what is in the Pentagon report on Saddam does not go along with the media’s narrative of there being no link between Saddam and al Qaeda.  Someone put no smoking gun on page one and leaked this to the press before the report was released.  The media did as it was told and lifted these lines while ignoring the truth within the report.

How could there be a cover-up when Bush was in office? Bush never cleaned out all the Clinton holdovers. The same Democrats constantly undermined the Bush administration. Is it any wonder that Obama left the Pentagon alone? I think that powerful Democrats told Obama we have control of the Pentagon, so leave Gates and it will look like an act of bipartisanship.  Bush did keep America safe for eight years.  Since Obama is perceived as weak on foreign policy it will give the appearance of strength and stability.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama has decided to keep Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates in his post, a show of bipartisan continuity in a time of war that will be the first time a Pentagon chief has been carried over from a president of a different party, Democrats close to the transition said Tuesday.
