'Gates Advocated Air Strikes on Nicaragua'

A deliberately misleading headline from those puckish wags at the Grauniad, I think, as the one time #2 at Langley and now Bush's nominee as Defence Secretary is not so well known that all in these parts will read the headline and think of him, rather than William Henry ('Bill') Gates III.

I expect we'll be seeing a lot more of this, so I thought I'd strike before the whole business get utterly tedious. I imagine impish sub-editors are dying to get their hands on stories involving Lionel Blair, Ben Thatcher, James Brown etc that they might play similar games.
