Mr. "Wrong on every foreign policy & national security issue over the past 40 years" is a heartbeat away from the presidency.

The sad thing is I don't think he could be any worse than the Kenyan Klown.

Gates is a traitor.

If he would have spoken out when he saw wrong, many Americans would not have been killed or injured.

But no. He wants to sell his book.

Silver coins for the forever stains on his hands.

Rot in Hell.
