Gates calls Biden “a man of integrity,” but questions his record. “I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”  There is an old saying I refer to when people make statements like this, “The more he talked of his honor, the faster we counted the silverware.”


I was reading articles regarding ROBERT GATES and his service to the United States as Secretary of Defense and Obama and I was intrigued by a couple of things.  One was the fact that the man kept working under what he portrayed as the most egregious of circumstances, and two was the backing of a man, Obama, that Gates has no respect for.  Gates tries to counter his negative discussions, but the arguments come across as lame and inadequate.  Gates is the one who did not believe in the military actions that were going on in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq.  He did not believe in them, but he kept going and making everything “fit”.  He was supposed to be Secretary of Defense, but he allowed the bashing of his Generals and others in charge by Obama and his Obinions.  Now Gates steps out and writes a book believing, one would guess, that this is his way of righting the wrongs of his service, IT DOES NOT!  The time to do his job was while he was doing his job, not in some “hack” way writing a whiny book now.  It is sad that MEN that should act like men at the proper time cower when they walk into a residence on Pennsylvania Avenue.  So sad!
