The Democrats went after the good General even before he gave his report and our friends at Moveon.org took out a newspaper ad attacking him, calling him General "Betray Us"
The ad accuses the general of "Cooking the Books for the White House" and asserts "General Petraeus is a military man constantly at war with the facts," citing optimistic statements the general has made about Iraq in the past.We certainly can't have any good news about the war, can we? That would be a terrible thing. Only for those who have staked their future on our failure. And those people would be those on the Left.
So you will see and are seeing the Left attacking the messenger, the message, and the ability of our troops to win the war.
