Robert M. Gates: My Fierce Critic and Award Presenter

by
Morgan Reynolds

A week ago I’m rearranging my office, hanging pictures and tapestries and the like and what do I discover?  Ha!  Upon my retirement Robert M. Gates as President of Texas A&M University had signed a commendation in December 2002 celebrating my “distinguished service” of 28 years for the university, its students, former students, faculty and administration (see pic below).  Next, I discovered in a second encomium Chairman of the Board of Regents of the Texas A&M University System Lowry Mays had signed a declaration in December 2003 bestowing the title “Professor Emeritus, Economics,” TAMU, upon me.

In June, 2005, my suspicion that 9/11 was a false flag operation became widely known after UPI, the Washington Times, and the Drudge Report picked up on my article on LewRockwell.com.  Dr. Gates then issued the following statement:

“The American people know what they saw with their own eyes on September 11, 2001.  To suggest any kind of government conspiracy in the events of that day goes beyond the pale.”

Gates’ statement has been taken down by the university but is cached here.  My article on Lewrockwell.com was taken down too in order to avoid embarrassing Ron Paul’s run for the presidency.  To learn more about this brouhaha, see my 2007 article/pdf on this site in which I take both Gates and Lowry Mays to task.

    I recently researched who was on the CFIUS* committee that unanimously voted FOR the Uranium One deal.

    Robert Gates was on CFIUS committee and voted FOR the Uranium One deal in June of 2010.
    Gates was held on as Secretary of Defense into the Obama administration.and retired in July of 2011.

    I understand the CFIUS members had to go to congress and explain, under oath, why they voted for Uranium One.
    Would have been interesting to see transcripts, with my own eyes, some of those truth-deficient testimonies.

    _____

    Way back in 2010, two of Lowry Mayes’ ClearChannel radio stations interviewed candidate for the Republican party nominee for Texas Governor, Debra Medina. In that first radio interview she appeared to want to be open to finding 9-11 truth and many of us Texas 9-11 truth seekers strongly supported her campaign. But in that second radio interview we observed how she threw 9-11 truth under the bus. Ms. Medina lost her race and it appears the Republican Party apparatus forced her to speak against 9-11 truth and thereby forced her to give up her strong bid for the nomination.

    I wrote a bit about that here

    • To extend Dachsielady’s comment, CFIUS is the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States and consists of nine federal officials, including the Secretaries of State and Defense. Any committee member could have objected to the Uranium One deal but none did. “The security agencies (the Defense Department, DHS and, to a lesser extent, the Justice Department)…often see the potential threats as more significant and seek more robust mitigation measures…Political staff is engaged (typically at the assistant secretary or undersecretary level) only in rare cases and secretarial engagement is even less common—except, of course, when the issue is going to be presented to the president for his actual decision.” Further, “Only the President [Obama in 2010] has the authority to suspend or prohibit a covered transaction,” according to federal guidelines.
