WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Another person speaks out against President Obama; what comes as a surprise is the slam comes from his former Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

In his new book, “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War” Gates slams the president’s leadership and commitment to the war in Afghanistan.

The book isn’t set for release until January 14th, but already there are plenty of published reviews.

So what’s Obama have to say about all of this?

A spokesperson from the National Security Council says President Obama “deeply appreciates Gates’ service” and welcomes differing points of view from his national security team.

Wonder what Gates thinks about that.
