"President-elect Obama’s choice in keeping on Secretary of Defense Gates is a good one and sends a message to the world that a change in President does not mean a change to our policy of fighting terrorists. As Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee I understand the importance of playing offense in the War on Terror and I am hopeful that President-elect Obama’s National Security Team will continue to fight to give our military, law enforcement and intelligence community the tools needed to keep our families safe," said Sen. Kit Bond in a statement provided to The Notebook.
