Van Jones: Gates should be ashamed

Van Jones says, "so much for bipartisanship," when he learns that Robert Gates, the former Defense Secretary, just released a tell-all book which bashes the Obama administration. Read the full story here.

Jones debated with Newt Gingrich and guests Larry Korp of Center of American Progress and Reuel Marc Gerecht of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

During the Final Question, Gingrich asks Korp if senior officials should have to sign a contract swearing not to reveal all about the administration they worked for. What do you think?

In the Crossfire: Former Pentagon chief's bombshell revelations

Shocking revelations from President Obama's former Defense Secretary. Robert Gates says the President didn't believe in his own war strategy. Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had honorable mentions as well. Full story here.

We debate the new tell-all memoir with Larry Korb of the Center of American Progress and Reuel Marc Gerecht of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

We want you to weigh in: Is Gates' decision to write a tell-all book an act of courage or betrayal?
