Former Def. Secretary Robert Gates: Obama 'Double-Crossed' Me (VIDEO)

Watch Gates on Fox News Special Report-
Double-crossed by O

Robert Gates, the Former Defense Secretary under George W. Bush and Barack Obama says he felt President Obama “double-crossed” him during his tenure over budget cuts to the Pentagon.

In a Fox News report Friday that explored the president’s approach to the military, Gates said Obama had promised him that there wouldn’t be any “significant changes” in the defense budget for a while.

When asked by Fox whether Obama kept to his word, Gates replied, “Well I think that began to fray. ‘Fray’ may be too gentle a word.”

According to the report, Gates was told to cut hundreds of billions of dollars from the defense budget after already having slashed it.

“I guess I’d have to say I felt double-crossed,” Gates said. “After all those years in Washington, I was na├»ve.”
