The Patriot Post® · Gates Slams Reid

In 2007, amid George W. Bush’s “surge” in Iraq, Harry Reid declared that it was useless because “this war is lost.” Well, among the things former Defense Secretary Robert Gates had to say about events during his tenure was to let Reid know exactly what he thought of those comments: “I thought that was one of the most disgraceful things I’ve ever heard a politician say.” And that’s saying something. But Gates explained why: “That sends a riveting message to kids who are putting their lives on the line every day that they’re doing it for nothing, and that was absolutely not the case.” Reid should still be ashamed of himself.
