Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates dishes out a harsh critique of President Obama’s leadership in his new memoir “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War.”

It just may be on the top of the list of books Obama and his administration doesn’t want you to read. And, for good reason.

This book will give an unseen look into the leadership of Obama, and the differences the two had. One such glimpse is detailed when he writes, “All too early in the [Obama] administration, suspicion and distrust of senior military officers by senior White House officials – including the president and vice president – became a big problem for me as I tried to manage the relationship between the commander in chief and his military leaders.”

Gates also gives another inside look into why Hillary Clinton opposed the Iraq surge writing: “Hillary told the president that her opposition to the [2007] surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary. … The president conceded vaguely that opposition to the Iraq surge had been political. To hear the two of them making these admissions, and in front of me, was surprising as it was dismaying.”

In short, this memoir is sure to turn a few heads upon being scheduled for release Jan. 14.
