Defense Secretary Gates wants to retire




Defense Secretary Robert Gates wants to retire sometime next year, a Pentagon spokesman confirmed Monday.

Gates was quoted in a Foreign Policy article saying he wanted to step down before the end of 2011.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said references in the article to Gates' desire to retire next year "accurately reflect the secretary's thoughts."

well this does seem to happen BEFORE the presidential election.
I wonder if there is a coincidence?

Gates also has a dual Israeli/American citizenship.

He's getting a head start on moving into the underground bunker before TSHTF. Or maybe I've seen Deep Impact too many times.

I'm chalking this one up to 2012.

Now whether that means TEOTWAWKI or the election, I haven't decided.

I just can't find anything to verify that.
