Former Defense Sec. Robert Gates: ‘Unrealistic’ To Say We Will ‘Destroy’ Al Qaeda, The Taliban

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates declared on Sunday morning that it is “unrealistic” to say that the U.S. will ever “destroy” al Qaeda or the Taliban.

“We’ve been after al Qaeda with all of the resources of the American military and intelligence community for 14 years now, and we haven’t destroyed it,” Gates told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press.
