Robert Gates, the former defense secretary under President Obama, seemed to reiterate in an interview that aired Sunday night that he believes President Biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.

Gates, who spent about three decades in the CIA, was introspective during an interview with CBS’ "60 Minutes," and was asked by Anderson Cooper, the correspondent, about his 2014 memoir titled, "Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War."  

Cooper pointed out a part in the book where Gates called Biden a man of integrity but wrote that he believes he’s "been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades."

"I think he’s gotten a lot wrong," Gates responded, before pointing out Biden’s opposition to "every one of Ronald Reagan’s military programs to contest the Soviet Union," the first Gulf War, and even pointed to their differences regarding Afghanistan during the Obama administration.
