Raw Politics: Duty and Distrust in new memoir about Afghanistan

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates blasts his former boss, President Obama, in a new tell-all book. He also takes aim at Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and even former General Petraeus in a memoir riddled with stories of suspicion and distrust. CNN’s Chief National Security Correspondent fills us in on the details.

    It is a shame that we have people in power that willfully and purposely stab people in the back. These people are not role models in my opinion. It is also a shame that we have so few in power that do not do all they can to make life better for everyone and act selflessly for the good of OUR country like the soldiers do when they give their lives. I truly believe that holding a powerful position in our government should be reserved only for those that will act selflessly for the people of this country. Anything less is a disgrace and a criminal offense to me. We can do much better than we have done for many decades now. We need to get the influence of money out of OUR government and those that continue to accept money for favors are committing treason against the people of this great country.
