  •  Agreed. Gates has to provide the goods (0+ / 0-)

    And soon.

    I have every confidence that he is doing that.

    You see, I know Gates' past, and I'm aware that he was once one of the Bush mafia's guys. I think his work on the Iraq Survey Team changed the guy. He may have already been somewhat moved to the center when Cheny et al tried to make Gates the Iran/Contra fall guy. But if that bit of duplicity didn't change his mind, the Iraq Survey may have.

    In any case, Gates actions during the last two years makes him, IMO, a hero. IMO, Gates, more than anyone else, saved our asses, saved the republic, from the machinations of some straight-up fascist enemies in high office.

    I would give it til the end of March for the first results, and til May for the full blown expose. Then the history can be written.

    If, for any reason, we don't see the results of these investigations by May, THEN it's time to unleash the whistleblowers in every direction.
