Former Defense Secretary Says Obama-Ukraine Criticism Unfair
Posted March 9th, 2014 @ 4:11pm by KFBK News

America's former defense secretary says criticism of President Obama's handling of the Ukrainian crisis needs to be toned down.  

Robert Gates told "Fox News Sunday" accusations of Obama not being tough enough are unfair. 'Putin invaded Georgia when George W. Bush was president. Nobody ever accused George W. Bush of being weak or unwilling to use military force' he says.

Republicans have said recently Obama not going in with guns blazing has made the U.S. look weak to Putin. Russian troops have reportedly surrounded Ukrainian military bases.
