President Barack Obama is taking a lot of heat over his handling of the Syria issue. Former defense secretaries Robert M. Gates and Leon E. Panetta in a joint appearance in Dallas voiced criticism of the president for asking Congress to authorize the use of force against Syria in retaliation over its use of chemical weapons. Both men served as defense secretaries under Obama.
