Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates Said Obama “Double-Crossed” Him

Anyone that follows the United States military as I have and I am sure many of you also is the fact early on I knew something was not right. I said to myself many times how can any Defense Secretary put up with this Marxist president who has shown discontent for our military power. How can anyone such as Robert Gates who was Defense Secretary under President George W. Bush put up with Obama cutting our military budget to post World War II levels at this time of world crises when so many countries want to destroy us? As time went on besides Gates there were resignations of Defense Secretaries Leon Panetta and Chuck Hagel. They all eventually wrote books as to how Obama weakened the military but you see writing books is not the answer. The answer at the time was they had taken oaths to protect the Constitution and to protect We The People from attack and they should have gone to the Congress and inform the Congress that Obama was and still is putting our military in jeopardy with a dangerously low military budget. I understand the fact that someone can say the Congress would have not done anything about it anyway considering they are gutless. But that’s not the point, the point is that when the president is weakening the military they had the responsibility to inform Congress even if it took all three of them to do it together. Writing books about it years later does not protect the United States.

The following was posted by Ed Morrissey, published by Hot Air News: “In a Fox News report Friday that explored the president’s approach to the military, Gates said Obama had promised him that there wouldn’t be any “significant changes” in the defense budget for a while.”

When asked by Fox whether Obama kept to his word, Gates replied, “Well I think that began to fray. ‘Fray’ may be too gentle a word.”

“According to the report, Gates was told to cut hundreds of billions of dollars from the defense budget after already having slashed it.”

“I guess I’d have to say I felt double-crossed,” Gates said. “After all those years in Washington, I was naïve.”

“Baier also talked with Gen. Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, who has been much more public about his unhappiness with the man who appointed him to that position:”

“Frankly, the United States of America is in a less strong position today because of the readiness and the size of our armed forces,” Flynn said”I think he sees the military actually as something that is more dangerous to the world,” Flynn added. “I think that he looks at the United States military and sees it as a threatening application around the world, than actually as a useful tool.”

What else do We The People have to see to convince us that there is a traitor in the White House. When countries are out to destroy the United States it’s not the time to be cutting back our military and by allowing this to take place Obama is not honoring the fact that his main duty is to protect We The People. If this is not a treasonous act I don’t know what is.
