    Petraeus Takes On Cheneyism

    If you listen closely, you'll hear the majority of Republicans drop their support of him at once. However, he is a man of principle to say the least and I am glad he is speaking out about this.

    Petreaus did an amazing job.

    1. We should abide by the Geneva Convention.
    2. Gitmo should be closed safely,
    3. Terrorists have received trials no prob.
    4. He supports the steps being taken to get rid of don't ask don't tell.
    5. He made no objection to civilian trials for terrorists LIKE WERE HELD UNDER THE LAST ADMIN.

    I don't know if it's true, I'm not saying it is, but on the news, it was said that only three terrorists had been tried by "Military Tribunal" by Bush and two of those three were let go by Bush.

    Is that true?

    Where are the Conservative posters? I'm sure they have an opinion on this..Seeing how much they loved the Gen when he wanted more troops...

    The whacko rectionaries here are scrambling at the moment. But sleaze always tries to ooze under the door. They will be along shortly.

    I notice a good portion of the righties enter the Colin Powell thread by attacking the man instead of addressing what he says. I wonder if they can pull anything out for this thread. :eusa_think:

    "General Petraeus or General Betray Us?" reads the full-page ad, which cost the liberal group MoveOn.org approximately $65,000 and ran in section A of today's New York Times.

    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.

    MoveOn.org Ad Takes Aim at Petraeus - ABC News

    so tell me, what changed about gen. petraeus besides his boss?

    people crack me up. :lol:

    he had horns and hooves when he worked for bush and now he's all that and a bag of chips.

    Well, I think it's safe to say that most of us aren't members of moveon.org. I, for one, am pretty sure I said then that it was stupid.

    yes?

    or should we hold all repubs responsible for what teabaggers say?
