    Next thing, you'll be accusing him of "pallin' around with terrorists".

    If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible...tonight is your answer.

      then he is.

      I haven't forgotten The Path to 9/11, Disney. You're still dead to me.

      Please describe why.  Gates is only a "reasonable" Republican by the very low bar set by Bush and Rumsfeld.

      Also, some of Gates underlings are Rumsfeld hires too, so the neo-cons still have a beachhead at DoD.

    •  Let's unpack that response above (0+ / 0-)

      The charges are:

      (1) Gates was a major figure in the Iran-Contra Scandal, with which I'd like to think you are already familiar.

      (2) Gates supported or implemented (I'm not sure of the charge being made) the mining of the harbors in Nicaragua, which is a war crime.  (Essentially, it's what the pirates off of Somalia are doing, but with murder rather than kidnapping as the goal.)

      Now, before you dismiss that with a flip comment, do either of these matter to you?

      The netroots is what the Letters to the Editor page wanted to be when it grew up.
