Statement of U.S. Senator Herb Kohl on the Confirmation of Robert Gates as Defense Secretary Today

Washington, DC -- US Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI) released the following statement today on the confirmation of Robert Gates to the position of Secretary of Defense. Kohl voted in favor of the Gates nomination:

"Robert Gates has made it clear that he has learned from past mistakes, and is prepared for the difficult challenge of Iraq. His candor before the Armed Services Committee yesterday was refreshing, and his appointment should help to bring about change in our policy in Iraq, and the Pentagon's relationship with Congress."
