At 12:15 p.m. today, Defense Secretary Robert Gates was scheduled to meet with President Obama in the Oval Office, according to the White House. Naturally, the meeting is closed to the press.
No agenda for the session has been released. It should be wrapped up before 3 p.m., though -- that's when Obama is slated to speak about and sign the Omnibus Public Lands Management Act of 2009.
