2. Gates' letter (which was interestingly given a Friday night newsdump)
is a no holds barred rebuke to the House and Senate leaders who wish to see this done before the midterms.

The administration is now firmly on record as opposing repeal until after this "study" is done. Since the "study" curiously and conveniently is not complete until December, one has to wonder about the strength and the veracity of the commitment.

Putting aside, of course, how profoundly ugly, offensive and bigoted this "study" is in the first place.
