Thank you Mr. Robert Gates for your service to your country in so many ways and to benefit so many people.! You are truly an American Patriot and are deserving of tremendous gratitude for your dedicating many years of your life to the protection and preservation of American soldiers, our people and our country. You are deserving of all America’s gratitude for fulfilling a mammoth responsibility of managing the military defense of the greatest nation in the world for many years. Many would agree that the Secretary of Defense position is the #2 position of importance in the American Government and you have fulfilled your responsibilities extremely well. Thank you very much sir!
We are now again indebted to you for writing your book now with the title of …
Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War
The country needs and deserves the honest and straightforward assessment of our leadership in this time of crisis, and we commend you for writing and releasing the book now, not in 2017. This country lacks honesty from President Obama’s Administration and it is important to learn of the perspective of a key cabinet member that hears firsthand from both Barack Obama and Hilliary Clinton that their military positions were based on their personal goals for political gain and achievement, and not for the country’s welfare. It is quite obvious to the discerning public that most decisions of this Administration are based primarily on how to improve their political position.
Mr. Gates, you have reinforced this fact in spades. Already the liberal media are denying the truth of your very honest convictions by insinuating that you wish to increase book sales or that you should have waited until the incumbents are out of office. Definitely not true sir! The American People deserve exactly what you have given as the mainstream media and the Administration refuse to be so honest. As a dedicated professional this is the farthest from the truth for you and it only shows the prisms of thought and concern from the sources of such criticism.
This is a very personal opinion however I am very proud to consider that you sir, Mr. Robert Gates, as well as others including Mr. Rand Paul, Mr. Ted Cruz, Mr. Mike Lee, Mr. Edwin Snowden, Mr. Darrell Issa, Mr. Scott Walker, Mr. Trey Gowdy, and Mr. Sean Hannity to be an elite group of American Patriots who have served this country extremely well by having the courage to stand up strongly for their principles during the last many months. My opinion is also high of several others in the U.S. and I encourage other Patriots to stand up for what they believe! I would like to include and applaud them as well! So would all Americans!
In summary Mr. Gates, the United States is forever indebted to you for your honorable and responsible service without bias to a political party. You have served at the request of two Presidents and many more leaders of our country. It is understandable that you enjoy living in the furthermost distant location from Washington, D.C. after all that you have seen and heard from that political arena. I for one ask that you continue to be honest and forthright in your communications about our political leadership and needs for correction with the urging of public opinion.
I am sure that the country could benefit tremendously from your insight and recommendations! Thank you Mr. Robert Gates!
