FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The Pentagon's chief says an upcoming
report from the top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan will likely highlight some bright spots about the military mission there along with grimmer conclusions that he described as "gloom and doom."

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates told reporters Monday that he has not seen the on-the-ground assessment from U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal.

The report was delivered to U.S. and NATO military leaders on Monday. It does not specifically ask for additional forces or funding but outlines general needs to win the fight against al-Qaida and the Taliban.
