Gates Instructed Commanders to Tell WH to 'Go To Hell' to Pushback Against Micromanaging

Over the weekend at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates accused President Barack Obama of micromanaging the military for purely “political” motives.
