In Hindsight…



Might this be the most ill-fated advertisement of 2007?





I was reminded of this disgusting overture when I came across this news: General David Petraeus, architect of the successful “surge” strategy in Iraq, is under consideration for nomination to the position of NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander.


In case the above graphic is not recognizable, it was first run in the September 10th edition of the New York Times. It was financed by Moveon.org, a left-wing smear group. Of course, such a distasteful jab at a fine military officer wouldn’t have been deemed creditable if it weren’t for all the Democratic candidates that Moveon.org has successfully supported in the past.


What’s maybe most interesting (and I’ll let you practice your searching techniques as I rather NOT post a direct link to such a repugnant organization) is that Moveon.org continues, to this day, to defend their traitorous advertisement.


In conclusion, I can only wish the best for General Petraeus in whatever future position he takes on behalf of our country’s security. On the other hand, I can only remind the electorate during this crucial election year of the bedfellows that the Left continues to keep.

Good points! FYI, General P is being looked at for head of NATO.

Even that old fool Murtha had to agree the surge was working. My own hope is that Petreaus is given the green light fo NATO Command but delays reporting for duty until the fall so he can keep an eye on Iraq during the spring and summer.

NATO might not be a good idea; flipping supreme theater commanders in the midst of a conflict has never been a winning move.

As for MoveOn, I wouldn't personally have much trouble "betraying" them, especially as they have repudiated all claims to trust and loyalty with their arrant defeatism and anti-US rhetoric.

Clarification: flipping WINNING theater commanders ...

As for NATO, jump McMaster or Nagl to 4-star and send them over. That'd shake 'em up! NATO doesn't deserve Petraeus; it would be a waste.
