Gates was relying on 23andme when he said about 20% of Greek men are
E1b1b1a2. Whether or not that's true is debatable, but, in fact, this is
indeed what 23andme says:

"Today, E1b1b1a2 is still found in the Balkans, with about 20% of Greeks and
24% of Albanians carrying this haplogroup. E1b1b1a2 is present at lower
levels in the surrounding Balkan Peninsula and in Anatolia"
