Everything you need to know...

...about military and "defense" policy under Barack Obama:

1. Robert Gates is staying on as Secretary of Defense.
An official close to the Obama transition team said it was likely Gates would be named defense secretary when the president-elect begins to unveil his national security team in announcements expected next week.

A former government official who has advised the Obama transition said that it was "99 percent certain" that Gates would remain as defense secretary for about a year in the Obama administration.
2. Joe Lieberman is happy with Barack Obama's cabinet.
"Everything that President-elect Obama has done since election night has been just about perfect, both in terms of a tone and also in terms of the strength of the names that have either been announced or are being discussed to fill his administration," Lieberman said during a visit to Hartford.
