Robert Gates is a serious man who has spent his career in the Air Force and the CIA, and who has been in senior leadership positions since the mid-1980s under both Republican and Democrat administrations.
Listen to what the man says about the incredibly wicked Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton:
In a new memoir, former defense secretary Robert Gates unleashes harsh judgments about President Obama’s leadership and his commitment to the Afghanistan war, writing 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. For him, it’s all about getting out.”
Leveling one of the more serious charges that a defense secretary could make against a commander in chief sending forces into combat, Gates asserts that Obama had more than doubts about the course he had charted in Afghanistan. The president was “skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail,” Gates writes in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War.”
What do you say about a man who doesn’t believe in sending troops and doesn’t think they will succeed – and then sends them there ANYWAY while ignoring the military experts’ recommendations simply out of pure, cynical politics???
Realize that Obama was a pure political agitator who relied on dishonest and deceitful and disingenuous rhetoric every step of the way in his rise to power. He ran against the Iraq War as the “bad war” but ran ON fighting the Afghanistan War as “the good war” in order to falsely present himself as mainstream and as tough when in reality he was NEITHER. Then he was elected by an incredibly foolish and depraved American people, the liar-in-chief had to stand by his dishonest rhetoric about Afghanistan even though he hadn’t actually believed ANY of it. Therefore he sent 30,000 men (to their graves for all he cared) as a half-ass attempt to appease his Pentagon and his own previous lies on the subject of Afghanistan. The military said they needed twice as many men to make a success out of Afghanistan; Obama should either have sent them all or admitted he had lied to get elected and didn’t believe in the war he had falsely claimed to support and sent NO ONE.
Gates goes on:
He writes: “Hillary told the president that her opposition to the  surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary. .?.?. The president conceded vaguely that opposition to the Iraq surge had been political. To hear the two of them making these admissions, and in front of me, was as surprising as it was dismaying.”
Do you hear that? Do you understand that? Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama BOTH admitted to demonizing a president during time of war out of pure, cynical, partisan politics. They literally both admit to putting their political posturings over and above the lives of our troops and above America’s national security.
How does Obama and the Obama administration feel about and deal with the military? Let’s use the word “shabbily:”
Gates continues: “I was pretty upset myself. I thought implicitly accusing” Petraeus, and perhaps Mullen and Gates himself, “of gaming him in front of thirty people in the Situation Room was inappropriate, not to mention highly disrespectful of Petraeus. As I sat there, I thought: the president doesn’t trust his commander, can’t stand [Afghanistan President Hamid] Karzai, doesn’t believe in his own strategy, and doesn’t consider the war to be his. For him, it’s all about getting out.”
And when it comes to the crony capitalist fascist weasel tyrant Barack Obama, the best political description of him in terms of American political history is “Nixonian”:
Gates acknowledges forthrightly in “Duty” that he did not reveal his dismay. “I never confronted Obama directly over what I (as well as [Hillary] Clinton, [then-CIA Director Leon] Panetta, and others) saw as the president’s determination that the White House tightly control every aspect of national security policy and even operations. His White House was by far the most centralized and controlling in national security of any I had seen since Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger ruled the roost.”
It got so bad during internal debates over whether to intervene in Libya in 2011 that Gates says he felt compelled to deliver a “rant” because the White House staff was “talking about military options with the president without Defense being involved.”
Barack Obama is a pure thug who lied and demonized and demagogued his way into office and then proceeded to create an administration that used the political machinery to punish political opponents FAR more than Nixon ever did. Nixon got impeached for TALKING about using the IRS against his political opponents while Obama was caught red-handed ACTUALLY DOING IT.
These are evil times. And America has become evil as it has allowed itself to be influenced by the evil times and by the evil people we have foolishly and wickedly chosen to lead us.
