General disturbance

"Withdraw, withdraw, withdraw" was the screaming headline at the HuffPo this morning in advance of the Petraeus report. They actually had the nerve to use an exchange with John Edwards at the Univision Spanish language debate to make their point.

On the other side of the spectrum, on Sunday the Weekly Standard reported this about
Tomorrow--as General David Petraeus provides his Iraq assessment to Congress--the antiwar group 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."
In other words, essentially calling the General a traitor. Amidst all of this, bin Laden is set to issue another tape soon. Will it also sound the call to retreat in Iraq? Sure. I'll let you make the connections.

Why, if the Democrats want retreat, don't they work behind the scenes with the president instead of being left to work in front of the scenes with bin Laden? It sure looks like they don't care.

Bin Laden is clearly trying to divide America, just like the Communists did during Vietnam and like Saddam tried to do several times in his career. Part of the plan employs willful participants:
During the hearing, the four-star general was heckled by anti-war protesters, including Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq. "Tell the truth, general," they shouted.
Kudos to Ike Skelton for tossing them out of the hearing posthaste. America must find a way to come together, or we are toast. This isn't Vietnam.

More cuss words in Congress. At least it appears to be bi-partisan progress!
