Defense Secretary Robert Gates is sticking to his guns with the press right now and refusing to entertain questions on Egypt or any other topic not related to the budget, noting that he is slated to testify before two committees later in the week and will have plenty of chances to talk about Egypt then.

Asked about the reaction on Capitol Hill to his defense budget plans, Gates noted that in meetings today "there really wasn't much discussion at all . . . about the politics of the budget. There were . . . a number of questions for clarifications sake, but really nothing beyond that."
