Gates vs. Rumsfeld - True or False or Both?

If there is any truth to this commentary by Ray McGovern that was posted on the Real News Network, Obama may have made a serious mistake in allowing Gates to continue on in his currrent capacity. Or perhaps Obama already knows about this problem and has plans to deal with it later. I also want to be skeptical about what McGovern says about Rumsfeld and have deep suspicions about it. But does anyone think what is said here about Rumsfeld is true? He was a tyrant, but perhaps less so than I formerly believed. Can anyone shed light on these questions for me because I’m hopelessly ill informed about these folks and want to hear more opinions on this subject.

I can make sense of it all quite easily, Buck. If Gates is a toady, as McGovern says, who pays close attention to which way the wind is blowing, well, Obama is the prevailing wind. Gates should know the levers of power inside the Pentagon by now, and we can expect him to manipulate the machinery on behalf of Obama.
