Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses Obama’s refusal to declare a “red line” on Iran’s nuclear program, Robert Gates’s insistence that Iran’s low enriched uranium is tantamount to a nuclear weapon, the abundance of evidence that Obama is not a secret dove and how Gates’s bipartisan tenure allows him to contradict Obama without consequence.

  2. "how Gates’s bipartisan tenure allows him to contradict Obama without consequence"

    Artful way of putting it. Gates is the fascist oligarch's running dog is how I would put it. Ray McGovern used to be his boss at the CIA (yes, that's the Cocaine Import Agency-heroin too and lots of it).

  3. But Fidel Castro said that the recent sanctions on Iran give the US permission to inspect Iranian ships from September and when they do, the war will start immediately. Isn´t it so ?

  4. If Obama & Gates disagree on such an important issue, why is Gates still Obama's SecDef?
