You are obviously not one that understands history, or has even studied it much are you? You do realize what the secretary of defenses job is, don't you? He is supposed to advise the President of how best to secure the safety of our country. Now if the guy can't answer some easy questions, do you really think he should be the one to keep our country safe? Let me make a real safe bet, you are one of those who thinks that "gun safe zones" will keep people safe from people who have stolen the guns they have and probably the car they are driving as well. Good luck with that genius.
