Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates in his memoir, ‘Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War’, has claimed that president Barack Obama is frustrated with US policy in Afghanistan – and that vice-President Joe Biden has been wrong on nearly every foreign policy and national security issue. He also accuses members of Congress of inquisition-like treatment of administration officials (only those who dare to criticize the Zionist regime). The memoir is expected to hit the bookstores next week.
In recalling a meeting in the Situation Room in March 2011, Gates writes: “As I sat there, I thought: The President doesn’t trust his commander, can’t stand (US Viceroy in Afghanistan) 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.”
Gates accuses Joe Biden of “poisoning the well” against the military leadership. Thomas Donilon, initially Obama’s deputy national security adviser, and then-Lt. Gen. Douglas E. Lute, the White House coordinator for the wars, are described as regularly engaged in “aggressive, suspicious, and sometimes condescending and insulting questioning of our military leaders.”
Under pressure from the War Lobby (Israel and Pentagon), in 2009 Obama approved the strategy of putting 30,000 additional troops into Afghanistan and placing Gen. David Petraeus incharge of US-NATO forces in 2010, even though some top advisers told Obama that Afghanistan war was a lost cause.
Gen. David Petraeus, with Jewish family roots, was proclaimed as hero of the US-Iraq War by the Jewish-controlled mainstream media. In April 2011, Barack Obama appointed him head of the CIA to replace Leon Panetta. However, Petraeus did make a unholy blunder when he asserted that Muslim world hates United States for its blind support for Israel. Israel’s Mossad chief Meir Dagan, warned a Knesset committee that, “Israel is gradually turning from an asset to the United States to a burden.” That was the begining of a vicious crusade against Petraeus lead by Abraham Foxman (ADL). As result, in November 2012, Gen. Petraeus was forced to resign as director of CIA over sex scandal, a Mossad false flag operation.
I bet, Israel Hasbara goons will deal with Gates’s memoir as they dealt with John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt book, ‘The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy‘. After all, criticizing Joe Biden amounts to ‘antisemitism’. On May 2013, Joe Biden said in his address at the Jewish American Heritage Month reception in Washington DC: American heritage is Jewish heritage.
Robert Gates, a Republican conservative politician, has been a loyal friend of Israel. Even when, rarely, he criticized Israeli policy – it was for his concern for the security of the Zionist entity. For example, on May 24, 2011 – Robert M. Gates, in his speech at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), told his Jewish audience that America must keep its forces in Iraq to defend the region against Iran. Earlier he told the guys at the West Point that US cannot defeat Iran without using nuclear bomb.
Robert Gates is not wrong in discrediting Obama administration and the law-makers. According to a recent poll conducted by the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 70% of Americans lack confidence in government’s ability to make progress on important prblems facing the nation.
To show his love for Israel, Gates did praise Barack Obama’s decision to order Navy SEALS to raid a house in Islamabad believed to be the hidding place of Osama Bin Laden “one of most courageous decision I have ever witnessed in the White House“. In September 2013, Pulitzer Prize winner Jewish investigative journalist and author, Seymour Hersh, in an interview with British daily Guardian said that Barack Obama lied about the death of Osama Bin Laden in May 2011 in Islamabad. He said Obama’s claim was “one big lie” and that “not one word” of the Obama administration’s narrative on what happened is true. Read more here.
In a statement, National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden responded to Gates’ book by saying that Obama “welcomes differences of view among his national security team.” And she defended Biden’s contributions to Obama’s foreign policy team.
The decade-long American wars in Afghanistan and Iraq would end up costing as much as $6 trillion, the equivalent of $75,000 for every American household, calculates the prestigious Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
