I'm inclined to believe Gates, he was appointed by Bush, unlikely to be carrying water for Obama, no longer in the admin, so job its not at stake, was in a position to know real life capabilities/limitations involved. Finding it hard to dismiss his opinion.

"BTW- I watched the Gates interview on CBS. He started off by saying that he only knows what he read in the paper"
That would be the information the Administration spoon fed the pare and they regurgitated and then he regurgitated .
Yah, hang your hat on that opinion.
