Robert Gates, Part I

The first in a three-part series by Roger Morris examining the career of Robert Gates is up now at Tomdispatch. It's fascinating.

More recent Tomdispatch:

• Michael Klare: "The Pentagon as Global Gas Guzzler"

• Karen J. Greenberg: "Blowback, Detainee-Style"

Tomdispatch is great. I always look forward to reading his website ever since I discovered it through this website. This piece on Gates by Roger Morris is no exception. Gates used to drown cats and boil them to study their bones, something all eagle scouts were into I guess. The CIA should be discontinued.
