Pentagon cuts to reflect Gates, White House tussle

Robert Gates has been successfully pushing back against White House attempts to more severely cut into weapons program funding than what the Pentagon had been bracing for, an analyst and defense company source said. Gates is due to brief lawmakers soon about his drive to find $100 billion in savings over five years from overhead and unnecessary programs, congressional aides said.
