So, Robert Gates writes a book which no one but wannabe traitors and criminal insiders would buy so he adds a little spice to his narrative and the media gives him diversion time and a plug. Without his 'criticisms' of Obama and Biden the yet to be released memoir would be soon delegated to the heavily discounted dustbin of mostly fiction and lies posing as fact. I won't bore you with the details, just read an article or turn on any news show and get the scoop. In essence it's one of those pot-kettle-black things that warmongers with something to sell like to throw around.
The Gates book, "Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War," would be more appropriate if titled "Dirty: Memoirs of a Cabal Criminal."
Gates was recruited as a spook in 1966 and never looked back. Neck deep in Iran-Contra and every other CIA/Pentagon scam during his career, Gates was the good little soldier of corruption whose last highlight was the fraud of the bin Laden 'killing' where he got a front row seat in the photo-op.
Gates was officially out of government on 9/11 but once back in the game he was of course tasked with continuing the cover up. So, he deserves a seat at the table of defendants indicted for that crime along with most of his friends.
Criticism of Obama is easy. He deserves it and more but this prick Gates needs to crawl back into his hole and spare us his self-manufactured sainthood. He and his book can go to hell.

I'm glad that more people are aware of the NSA's criminality but where is this going to lead us? Is the Supreme Court going to rule that what they are doing is unconstitutional and shut it down? Is Rand Paul's class action lawsuit against the NSA with hundreds of thousands of names going to win? Is the blowback against the NSA going to result in a big false flag to 'prove' how much the spying is needed? Or will the whole uproar die without a bang but with a whimper and the people accept their slavery and surveillance as the new normal? I have hopes that the NSA will crumble under the weight of its own corruption and the will of the American people will prevail but we'll just have to stay tuned for the conclusion. The script is still a work in progress.
