Ex-Defense Secretary Robert Gates Throws Obama Under The Bus

Last week I wrote a post Titled, “Obama Gave Up On Iraq”: Al Qaeda Hasn’t. I wrote this after I learned that Al Qaeda was once again getting a foothold in Iraq. It is pretty obvious to me that Obama didn’t want anything to do with Iraq and he was pretentious that he cared about his self labeled good war Afghanistan. It is ironic that today Ex- Defense Secretary’s new book came out in which he is highly critical of President Obama’s leadership style.

Here are some inserts from his book. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, in his upcoming memoir, has harsh words for President Obama’s leadership style and commitment to the Afghanistan war, accusing the president of losing faith in his own strategy.“For him, it’s all about getting out,” he wrote.

Gates writes that by early 2010 he had concluded the president “doesn’t believe in his own strategy, and doesn’t consider the war to be his.”

The 70-year-old Gates writes that Obama appeared to doubt his own strategy in Afghanistan to the point of being “outright convinced it would fail.”

This is really bad; it doesn’t take much to think about it. We have sons and daughters over there to defend our country with all their vigor, toughness, and sacrifice and here we have a president who doesn’t consider the war to be his and doesn’t believe in his own strategy as expressed by Robert Gates. Take a pause and think about this. This is downright criminal on Obama’s part. He is the Commander-In Chief, as long as he has troops anywhere and anytime. He is to wholeheartedly plan a strategy for victory as much as we have found out by now Obama doesn’t like to use the word victory. As you can see, now we know why, Obama doesn’t have his heart in it and that being the case he shouldn’t be president

    More like, “Gates threw the Book at him”.

      I get a sense that Gates held back in a way considering he did work for him. How on the one hand he said the things he said and on the other hand he said Obama got things right. The two do not go together. I believe Gates held himself back from the complete critique.

    The criminal part was starting the war in the first place. How many Afghan people have died so we can defend “our honor”?

      If you recall this was the country that had Bin Laden in hiding that killed almost three thousand of our people at the twin towers. It seems to me that the Afghan people have centuries of fighting and dying which is a shame.
