OK, so maybe it was the pollyanna in me, but I thought Robert Gates would at least bring a new tone to the Defense Department (no more Rummy talk about those who oppose the war being defeatists, yada yada yada).
But looks like Gates just proved me wrong. Today, he said that a resolution in Congress to stop Bushie's "surge" plan in Iraq, would embolden the enemy. During a press conference, he commented "It's pretty clear that a resolution that in effect says that the general going out to take command of the arena shouldn't have the resources he thinks he needs to be successful certainly emboldens the enemy and our adversaries."
