Robert Gates seems to be fed up with congress. He's getting a bit feisty over congress' interference in his plans to get Defense spending in line with the country's actual needs.
Saxby Chambliss' comments in that article make me want to tear my hair out. He plays the veterans card to explain his opposition to capping F-22 production. This from a guy who beat Max Cleland by calling him unpatriotic. Excuse me if I call bullshit. And why doesn't he just tell the truth? "The plane is assembled in my state, and like almost everyone in the US Senate (or House), I put the needs of a few people in my state or district above the needs of my country."
I can't blame Gates for being a bit ticked off.
