The White House is bristling over former Defense Secretary Robert Gates' new memoir, which accuses President Barack Obama of showing too little enthusiasm for the U.S. war mission in Afghanistan, and sharply criticizes Vice President Joe Biden's foreign policy instincts. In a book set for release next week by the publishing house Knopf, Gates writes that Biden is "a man of integrity," but also a political figure who has been "wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades."
