US deep state actor and spook
Robert Gates became Deputy director of the CIA.
"Robert Gates told me that Casey had never indicated to him that he had specific information about the Pollard material arriving in Moscow. "The notion that the Russians may have gotten some of the stuff has always been a viewpoint," Gates said, but not through the bartering of emigres. "The only view I heard expressed was that it was through intelligence operations" — the K.G.B."
Realist faction leader
Jim Lobe argued that Gates was the leader of a realist faction in the Bush administration, rivalling the neoconservatives.
- The realist resurgence can also be traced to the rise of specific individuals, who took the place of their discredited predecessors in posts between the beginning of Bush's second term and the end of 2006 when the most important realist of all – Defense Secretary Robert Gates – replaced Donald Rumsfeld at the Pentagon.
