Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates Slams President Obama's Politicized National Security Policy

This is been the leading story all day.

See Bob Woodward, at WaPo, "Robert Gates, former defense secretary, offers harsh critique of Obama's leadership in ‘Duty’."

And Gates has an op-ed at WSJ, "The Quiet Fury of Robert Gates." (At Memeorandum.)

The commentary on the news shows has been blistering as well. Charles Krauthammer says Gates' rebuke of  Obama is an "indictment that rises above everything else he's done in his presidency."
