A new quote from former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates’ new book Duty, Memoirs of a Secretary at War reveals even deeper and more disturbing insight into the Obama administration than earlier quotes. He gives an account of a meeting that he says is “seared in his memory.” Never in his long years of service at the highest levels had he heard a President issue “an order” to military leaders, but that day Obama issued “an order” after Biden led him into it. A Middle East advisor recommended “breathtaking” measures to stabilize Afghanistan. Biden was the only voice of disagreement among the “national security principals.” Biden “argued that the war was politically unsustainable at home.”
A great piece written by Maggie that dovetails nicely with my latest blog on “The Lone Survivor.” The one thing that struck me as I watched the movie was how little the political animals understand the military…
We spend MORE to give financial support to the welfare recipients in this country then we do for our military, fallen warriors and their families…that in my humble opinion is just morally wrong and pretty much ass backwards..
