Robert Gates, Useful Idiot

This morning, in an interview with NPR, Robert Gates said at 1:59 of the interview that our strength lies in our ideals. After this he goes on to give a defense of America’s involvement in the war in Afghanistan. What he intendrd to say was something like, “Ultimately, our strategic advantage on the world stage lies in our ability to behave like quixotic do-gooders. It is ideas in the head, not facts on the ground, which win wars.”
