"Secretary Gates, that causes somewhat of a problem," said Rep. Colleen W. Hanabusa, Hawaii Democrat. "If we are cutting the budget ... as much as it can, I'm curious as to how you are going to now be able to accommodate [the costs of operations in Libya and Japan] out of that [contingency operations] budget that is supposed to already be cut pretty close to the bone."
Rep. Colleen W. Hanabusa, whose question prompted Mr. Gates' comments, told The Times last week she found his remarks "disconcerting" at a time "when we're searching high and low for ways to cut spending."
