It's rare that I have anything positive to say about establishment insiders, but I have gotten the impression that, ever since he was confirmed in office, Secretary Gates has been making efforts to put DOD and the military itself back on a professional basis. This appears to be one such effort. This is an intelligent thing to do since it's not a very good thing for armed forces to have to worry about rogue, paramilitary units operating in their area of operations beyond the law with all the inevitable blowback that they will bring upon uniformed, disciplined troops who are subject to a code of military justice.
