US Missile Strikes in Pakistan Will Continue: Gates

The United States will continue to carry out missile strikes against al Qaeda militants in Pakistan, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Tuesday.

Pakistani officials have complained publicly about the attacks from unmanned U.S. aircraft in tribal areas, saying they are a violation of sovereignty and increase resentment towards both Pakistan's government and the United States.

U.S. officials normally decline to comment publicly on reports of the missile strikes, but Gates made an exception when asked about Pakistan's complaints at a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

So I heard the theory that Obama kept Gates but really will be pressing his own theory/views about diplomacy/Iraq/Iran/Pakistan... If his views are different then why doesn't Obama tell him to shut up. If Gates keeps on talking, it looks like the Same Old Shit just in a new package.
