Quote of the Day

Posted By McQ • [May 15, 2009]

Defense Secretary Robert Gates, in a 60 Minutes interview to air this weekend.

"The truth of the matter is, being secretary of war in a time of war is a very painful thing... How can you like a job when you go to Walter Reed and you know you sent those young men and women in harm's way? Every single person in combat today I sent there and I never forget that for a second. I don't enjoy my job."
