    There is an interesting quote from him in the middle of this.

    "
    According to the New York Times account, Gates writes, "[Obama] eventually lost faith in the troop increase he ordered in Afghanistan, his doubts fed by top White House civilian advisers opposed to the strategy, who continually brought him negative news reports suggesting it was failing."


    So it looks like bias in the media doesn't just come to us but goes to the loser in charge too.
    LOL Gates is an idiot. Those aides were telling the truth! Who wants to volunteer to be the LAST American to be killed in that hole? Obama knows that all we need is drones to kill off the Taliban leaders.

    Ah the good old "Argument By Verbiage" tactic. "Obama didn't use one particular word I want him to!"
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

The invasion and occupation of Iraq was a disaster. Afghanistan has been nothing but a waste of lives and resources with nothing to show for it. Why should anyone who has been paying attention throw a ticker tape parade knowing that they got us involved in two wars they didn't know then or now how to effectively wage or end? In terms of his boo-hooing about the level of oversight and "meddling"; the man is old enough to remember that if you leave the military alone for five minutes it will sell weapons to Iran to subsidize a coup d'etat in Nicaragua without authorization.

    So you approved of President G.W. Bush's and Rumsfeld's Afghanistan policy of having only a small footprint in Afganistan ?

    I also kind of went along with that policy.

    Ah yes, the troop increase that Gates et. al were stomping their feet to have authorized. Just further evidence that the military leadership has no idea what its doing.

    Robert Gates is a civilian not a military leader. He also had a long career as a yes man working for both Republican and Democrat administrations.

    Leon Panetta is also a Democrat and has a long track record as a yes man. He also has hinted on Obama being incompetent.

    Obama has already purged 197 high ranking military officers and replaced them with politically correct pantywaist yes men who couldn't fight their way into whore house.

    Hate to disappoint you, but the entirety of the military including the Secretary of Defense serves at the pleasure of the President.
