MoveOn.org Calls Petraeus a Traitor
MoveOn.org Calls Petraeus a Traitor Daily Standard written by Pete Hegseth, he is executive director of Vets for Freedom and an Iraq War veteran
As General David Petraeus provides his Iraq assessment to Congress--the antiwar group MoveOn.org is running a full-page advertisement in the New York Times under the headline: "General Petraeus or General Betray us? Cooking the books for the White House."
Let's be clear: MoveOn.org is suggesting that General Petraeus has 'betrayed' his country. This is disgusting. To attack as a traitor an American general commanding forces in war because his 'on the ground' experience does not align with MoveOn.org's political objectives is utterly shameful. It shows contempt for America's military leadership, as well as for the troops who have confidence in him, as our fellow soldiers in Iraq certainly do.
General Petraeus has served this country for over 35 years with honor, distinction, and integrity. And this is not just about General Petraeus. After all, if General Petraeus is "cooking the books," then the entire military chain of command in Baghdad, and all the staff, military and civilian, who have been working with General Petraeus are complicit, since Petraeus did not write his report in isolation. They are all, apparently, 'betray[ing] us.'
MoveOn.org has been working closely with the Democratic congressional leadership --as an article in today's Sunday New York Times Magazine makes clear. And consider this comment by a Democratic senator from Friday's Politico: "'No one wants to call [Petraeus] a liar on national TV,' noted one Democratic senator, who spoke on the condition on anonymity. 'The expectation is that the outside groups will do this for us.'
So, veterans who served in Iraq ask the Democratic leaders in Congress: Does MoveOn.org speak for you? Do you agree with MoveOn.org? Or do you repudiate this despicable charge?
MoveOn.org has helped frame the core choice: Whom do we trust to run this war--MoveOn.org and its allies in Congress, or Gen. David Petraeus and his colleagues?
Wild Thing's comment........
We live in a time where the TRAITORS who want America defeated in the war call the General who is winning the war for us a traitor! When will we start putting US Executioners ropes around these leftist traitors necks?
They ALL voted to confirm him unanimously and now they want to crucify him even before they hear the report.
I think that the MoveOn psychos and their Democrat enablers have made a BIG mistake. For 6 years they have insisted that it was not acceptable to use the word 'traitor' to refer to those who oppose the war. By introducing the term into national political discourse they have legitimized its use by anyone who wishes to use it to describe others.
We have far more evidence to use the term against them than they do to use it against Gen. Petraeus. Since Democrat members of Congrss have been conspiring with MoveON in this campaign, it is fair to apply the term to them and all those who align with them.
IF TREASON IS THE QUESTION, THEN MOVEON.ORG IS THE ANSWER!

What MoveOn.org and their Democrat allies in Congress don't realize is their is a vast difference between Communism and radical Islam.
Back during the Cold War the MoveOn.org types wanted us to submit to Communism. They were dead set against Regan's military buildup during the 80's which ended Soviet domination. If things had been different and Communism had won, the left and communist supporters here in America would have been greatly rewarded. They would have been put in positions of leadership and power...what they wanted. But, under radical Islam their will be no rewards for the Liberals; no positions of power and leadership, only death to non believers. So, unless they convert to radical Islam, they too will die and unfortunately for them, their stance against the 2nd Amendment will most likely see them unarmed and unable to fight back.

This has always been confusing to me too. The left keeps calling us, Right-wingers, Nazis and all. But the Islomo-fascist are indeed Nazis, in the true sense of the word.
Yet they go after Bush as if Gorbachof(sp) was his only opponent.
Can't they see that their hate is destroying this country ?

The Left are socialists, through and through. Most of them live well under capitalism, but they hate that same capitalism. They support anything that would destroy capitalism. Hence their support of communism and soialist dictators.
I really believe Mark's statement that these leftists are not thinking ahead in this war with islam. Although the Left has not actively shown much support for the terrorists, their anti-America stance is at least a passive support of islam. If the islamists were to win they would start a bloodbath against infidels. Most Leftists would be on the high end of the hit list because of their stupidity, weakness and lack of any religion.

I have been watching Genreal Patraeus on Fox, he is unflappable. The man has so many rows of ribbons one more row will have to put them on the back side of his uniform jacket.
Mr. Ackerman (D=dumbass)from New York just asked him why he hasn't referred to the war in Iraq as part of the greater war on terror.... Gee congressman maybe because he was asked to report on the war going on in Iraq ??? Which is where he expertise is at this point., .... The snide sniping remarks from the dems are just over the top.
There is no answer the General can give that will satisfy these half-witted morons. There arrogance, and self-serving attitude

There are bad times ahead. We're dealing with a very committed, and large, group of people who hate the existing order, whatever it is. They have only one goal: Power. After obtaining it, they'll decide what they want to do with the country.
One of the major parties has made the Devil's Deal and signed on with them. They'll end up like Trotskyites, dead, and some like Trotsky with an ice pick jammed into his ear.
The 1960's were bad. What's ahead will be much, much worse, chiefly because the world is much worse and we have more, determined, external enemies.

Darth, a long list huh. How times have changed and I hate to say this but it is down hill from here unless this country gets a grip on reality of what we face. Thanks Darth.

Bob, that is exactly what is happening and what will happen.

Mark, it is so weird to me how they don't get tired of all that hate, day in and day out never ending. It is like it is part of their weapon against our country. Hate, teach it, preach it, live it, talk it up........augh!
Your comment about Genreal Patraeus. I am so glad you brought that up. I got to see it too and he was so awesome, so strong.
LOL I love what you said about his rows of ribbons. haha I was wondering where they would put the next row. hahaha

Tom I agree, and so many lefties do not own any kind of protection too. Not all but a lot of them do not even own one gun.
At least those of us on the right want to have protection and own guns.
