INTERVIEW - Robert Gates, "Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary of War"

"In 'Duty,' Gates reflects on debates waged behind the scenes of war" PBS Newshour 1/14/2014


JUDY WOODRUFF (Newshour):  One of the most talked-about and controversial books of the new year went on sale today.  Its author, Robert Gates, has served eight presidents, held key posts at the White House, was head of the CIA and secretary of defense under Presidents George W. Bush and Obama.

The book, "Duty:  Memoirs of a Secretary of War," sparked a frenzy of headlines ahead of its official release for his public criticism of the administration he recently left.

I spoke to him earlier today.  He was wearing a neck brace after falling at his home last week.

Secretary Robert Gates, welcome to the NewsHour.
