Conference Proceeding
The author reflects on the announcement of Defense Secretary Robert Gates that he is not going to recommend General Peter Pace to President George W. Bush for his second term for the Chairperson of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) in the U.S. The author noted that the confirmation hearing of Pace in the Senate would be debatable since the Iraq War has done during his term. Yet, the author recognizes the devotion and distinguished service of Pace in the country as a whole.
