Here is the problem. Gen. Petraeus is COMCENTCOM – the Strategic Level Commander. The Commander in AFG reports to COMCENTCOM.
The take away message is this: the left owns this war now. They raged against Bush. Fumed and loathed the military, while hoping that the draft would come back. Maybe that would energize the youth and make’em vote democrat.
They lied to sell a campain of astroturf and false promises.
When an ally (in uniform no less!) speaks with candor and gives a no-shit opnion, the left. lost. it.
It’s not about peace, or hope, change or anything like that. It’s about power. Gen. McCrystal did his job, his staff flapped their gums around a lefty reporter (who is still embedded with US troops). How dare he! It’s Truman v. MacArthur all over again!1!!
Execpt it ain’t so. Other events have show how prepared the White House is. The left wants the war to be over and off the front page. Then they can get beck to their crazy agenda.
The good general’s replacement? GEN Petraeus. Remember him? Moveon.org does. Oh wait…they deleted their Gen. Betray-us ads from their website!
Meanwhile the war goes on.
