Megyn Kelly, Allen West on Robert Gates’ criticism of WH leadership

Comments in a recently-released book cast doubt on President Obama’s leadership and became the subject of an interview with former Congressman Allen West on Fox News Tuesday.

Robert Gates wrote a book critical of both President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Gates served as defense secretary under both George W. Bush and Obama.

West felt that the reason al-Qaida forces recently overran Fallujah is a lack of a status of forces agreement at the close of hostilities in Iraq, which resulted in a vacuum filled by Iran and extremist forces.

“You have to have a trust as a commander-in-chief with those generals on the ground,” West said.

It’s “the difference between a politician as opposed to a leader.”

West noted that Obama “is looking for the sound bite and the short-term political objective.”

    Headline reads: “Megyn Kelly, Allen West on Robert Gates’ criticism of WH leadership

    The headline assumes there IS leadership in the WH.

    I say: Prove it!

    Quote by Vince Lombardi- “Leadership rests not only upon ability, not only upon capacity, having the capacity is not enough. The leader must be willing to use it. Leadership is then based on truth and character. there must be truth in the purpose and willpower in the character.” If only.
