COLLEGE STATION (AP) - Former Texas A&M University President Robert Gates is returning to Aggieland to promote his recently released book about his nearly five-year tenure as the nation’s defense secretary.

Gates was likely to encounter a friendly audience Tuesday during a presentation and book-signing on the A&M campus in College Station.

His tell-all book raises questions about President Barack Obama’s war leadership and harshly criticizes Vice President Joe Biden.

Gates was CIA director under President George H.W. Bush. He was Texas A&M president from August 2002 until December 2006 when then-President George W. Bush named him to oversee the Pentagon.

Gates was the lone Bush cabinet holdover when Obama won the White House. Gates left the Defense Department and what he’s called “the mess in Washington” in July 2011.
