If so, he is defeating the arguments made by the Republicans re: Benghazi. The F-16 flyover would have been futile and possibly deadly to Americans.
Gates was CIA Director under Bush, the elder Republican.
He was Secretary of Defense under Bush, the younger Republican, replacing Rummy.
I'll bet Chaney is mad again at these comments. He had Rummy under control (Svengali) but not Gates.
When Gates was asked whether he thought that [Clinton engineering a coverup to protect her political future] might be a possibility, he replied flatly, "No."
Gates imbecilic response speaks for itself.
Either he's lost his mind, has some sort of medical condition affecting mentation, or was abusing a substance when he made that statement . . . . or he's simply lying.
