    White House Disputes Claims In Gates' Critical Book


    by Wochit

    The White House is disputing claims by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates that President Obama has lost faith in his Afghanistan policy. In a memoir to be released next week, Gates writes that Obama -- who sent additional troops to Afghanistan during his first term -- began to have doubts about the policy, spurred in part by negative feedback from civilian advisers in the White House. The book – Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War – is set to come out on Tuesday of next week.
