I listened to a conversation with Tony Capaccio, Pentagon correspondent for the Bloomberg News Service, on C-SPAN earlier. He was asked about allegations made against Robert Gates, the nominee to replace Rumsfeld as Defense Secretary, many years ago. I covered these earlier in my post called “Rumsfeld Resigns”. He said these allegations were made, and they were debunked back then. He predicted these charges would come back again during his confirmation hearing. And I assume the old rationales for why the allegations were wrong will have to be reiterated.
