Robert Gates Confirmed

Robert Gates has been confirmed 95-2 as United States Secretary of Defense.

While I'm deeply skeptical of the man, given his involvement fostering many of the people whom the United States is now fighting in a war on terrorism, its hard to feel bad about the passing of the Rumsfield era. Gates has said that he knows that the Iraq War is not going well and that it is his top priority. This beats the head in the sand, business as usual approach taken by Rumsfield.
