The Corner

Re: Gates, From an Intel Guy

Ms. Lopez,

Having read Mr. Robert Gates’ autobiography several times for historical context, the Corner might find it of interest

that Mr. Gates was highly involved (and gave great credit to Pres. Jimmy Carter for initiating) with covert and clandestine insurgent activities

within Eastern Europe and the former USSR.

Why is this interesting? Perhaps Mr. Gates’ pragmatic input to successful insurgent tactics in Eastern Europe will be useful in conducting

ANTI-insurgent planning in Iraq.

To be noted: Mr. Gates spelled-out as many unclassified facts and activities as he could; these activities took place during the late 1970′s in propping up John Paul and

the Polish Solidarity covert insurgency against the Warsaw Pact….
