It wasn't us who called Petraeus "an ass-kissing little chicken****". It was Admiral William Fallon, head of CENTCOM.

What does that have to do with anti-American socialist organization like Move-On.Org?

INTERESTING??????????
Did anybody stop to consider how the anti-American socialist liberal kooks bestow trust in certain people and others are branded puppets and liars out-of-hand????????????
The majority of the cut-an-run socialist donkies were braying at the top of their lungs about retaliation after 9/11 but when events soured a little they now want to surrender!
Their cowardly vacilation is ignored and they are saints now and people telling the truth and trying to protect us are savaged and called names!
These hypocrites wouldn't just line up behind anybody spouting what they want to hear at the moment,WOULD THEY??????????


TAKE IT TO THE BANK!!!!!
Later, Bill Koski

The lefties at the Daily Kos, phil and Think Progress are both giving a lot of play to the following quote that Admiral William Fallon allegedly (much more on that in a bit) made about his underling David Petraeus during their first meeting in Baghdad last March. The Daily Kos and Think Progress report Fallon called Petraeus “an ass-kissing little chicken-sh*t.”

I know what you’re thinking. For reputable outfits like the Daily Kos and Think Progress to report such an incendiary comment, the remark must be impeccably sourced. Well…
The original report of the comment, the scoop if you will, came in something called the “Inter Press Service News Agency,” or “IPS” as the organization bills itself. What? You’ve never heard of this IPS and find yourself curious about who and what it is? IPS describes itself this way on its website: “IPS, civil society's leading news agency, is an independent voice from the South and for development, delving into globalisation for the stories underneath. Another communication is possible.” I don’t know what any of that means either, but I figure I’d share it with you and put it our there for deconstruction.

http://www.ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=39235

A couple of things about this IPS “scoop”. IPS reported the alleged exchange on September 12, or yesterday to you and me. The alleged exchange occurred back in March. You also might wonder how IPS got this juicy nugget. Did Admiral Fallon put a call into the news agency renowned for “delving into globalization”? Hardly. IPS got the story from “Pentagon sources familiar with reports of the meeting.” Mind you, IPS didn’t just use just anonymous Pentagon source who might have seen the exchange. IPS relied on sources who not only didn’t witness the exchange, but didn’t even talk to people who witnessed the exchange. They were just “familiar with reports of the meeting.” Allegedly.
Here’s the kicker. Both Think Progress and the Daily Kos report IPS’s “scoop” like it’s a fact. Think Progress qualifies its reportage of Fallon’s comment merely by saying, “Inter-Press Service suggests animosity between the two might be one reason for Fallon’s absence” and then hits its readers with the quote. Think Progress does not bother to note the flimsiness of IPS’s reporting, nor does it bother to say exactly who and what IPS is. Maybe IPS is a household name where “delving into globalisation” is de rigueur, but I doubt it.

http://www.ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=39235

The Daily Kos does even worse. In happily relating Fallon’s alleged comment, Daily Kos front pager BarbinMD doesn’t even mention IPS. She doesn’t even link to IPS, a tacit admission of what a pile of hooey their report is. Instead, Dr. Barbin oddly chose to link back to Think Progress’s report on the matter.

http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2007/9/13/6162/35373

And thus in the modern left’s eyes, a Four Star General who has served his country for decades becomes “an ass-kissing little chickensh*t.” And once again, the rest of the country is left to wonder about our nation’s far left: Have they no decency?

No need to answer the last question, we know the answer! This is what passes as fact to today’s lefty. Someone who wasn’t there, didn’t see and won’t put their name to it.

You far righties been chewing on your toys again?????

The general is dumbya's little biotch and everyone knows it.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

.....Yet Bob comes on here and defends them.

Good liberal, Bob, good liberal. Did they give you your treat for doing a good job?

......The General is still a "Hero" in my book.

Where in my post did I say I was defending them?(moveon)

Your just a ordinary typical far rightie.
All you can do is "spin".

Its no wonder this country is in such sad shape.
And we can thank dumbya for it.

Now there is a "real" liar and coward.

Jim Webb is asking for Fallon to testify as "You know, the Petraeus report was brought in. On the one hand they’re calling it independent; on the other, General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker, from my understanding, gave a one-hour exclusive interview to Fox News after their first day of testimony."


So we may get the w**** story. There is bad blood there. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...AR2007090801846.html

Sen. John Cornyn (R- The Great State of Texas) offered an amendment on the Senate floor to express the Sense of the Senate that Gen. David Petraeus, the commanding general, Multi-National Forces-Iraq, “deserves the full support of the Senate and strongly condemns the personal attacks on the honor and integrity of Gen. Petraeus and all the members of the United States Armed Forces.” House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) sponsored a similar measure.

Naturally, today’s Democratic congressional leaders and the party’s presidential candidates won’t allow the measures to come up for a vote.

Go figure

Democratic candidate finally says move-on Org ad wrong…sort of

Elizabeth Edwards criticizes MoveOn.org ad

quote:
MoveOn.org should not have labeled Gen. David Petraeus “General Betray Us” in a controversial newspaper ad, Elizabeth Edwards said in Des Moines Friday.

“Someone who’s spent their life in the military doesn’t deserve ‘General Betray Us,’” said Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards.


http://desmoinesregister.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=...S/70914014/1001/LIFE

Well at least one on the candidates wives have stones to stand up for what is right. Too bad she’s not running. Judging by the deafening silence from the dem candidates, we can only conclude that disparaging military leaders is OK by them. Once again I remind you these same people are campaigning to be in charge of the very same military that they show so little respect for.

Disgusting

Very...

If they keep waffling along and dont get much of anything accomplished like they have the last 10 months or so I predict the sensable people in this country will vote another Republican to the White House.

I will LMFAO if that happens....

People WILL get tired of the new direction shortly since it seems to be directionless....

VoteVets.org On Petraeus Testimony

Jon Soltz, Iraq war veteran, and chairman of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans group, VoteVets.org, released the following statement today:

"The president is hiding behind General Petraeus, and that was abundantly clear today.

General Petraeus was given an order - find a military solution for Iraq where there is none, and without concern for troop overextension or the larger war on terror. General Petraeus followed his orders, giving the president what he wanted to hear, and now the president will hide behind that to justify his failure as a commander in chief."

"General Petraeus has a very limited area of concern - the US military in Iraq - and his testimony today reflected that."

"When one looks at the grander scale, past just the military in Iraq, the picture is dismal, and becoming a critical danger. From the Government Accounting Office report to Congressional Research Service report to the report by General Jones, it is clear that there has been no political reconciliation overall in Iraq or increased security, despite our military's strongest efforts. From Admiral Fallon to Admiral Mullen, those above General Petraeus in the chain of command are telling the president that this war is hurting our military and our global security.

The president has chosen to ignore all of this, in favor of a report based on a false premise with faulty findings, signed by a General with a very limited scope of concern. Call it denial, or call it stubbornness, or whatever you want; it all boils down to the same thing - this president still refuses to listen to those he needs to listen to, in favor of those who tell him what he wants to hear."

The veterans group raised just over $1.3 million in the last election cycle. Some of that money came in large doses, from Wall Street and Hollywood sources. Lynne Wasserman, daughter of the late Hollywood mogul Lew Wasserman, shelled out $25,000. Hedge fund owner Kevin Toner, a generous Democratic contributor, gave $25,000, as did Brian Snyder, another New York investor. Other donors include Phil Donahue, Democratic doyenne Beth Dozoretz, TV producer Norman Lear and architect Frank Gehry. At least $20,000 has come from organized labor and another $5,000 came from Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid's (D-Nev.) Searchlight Leadership Fund. But most donations have been $1,000 or less.

Soltz said the group is pro-military and not a front for the Democrats. "I'm a conservative," said Soltz, who volunteered on Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign.
Yeah right. The organizatin isn't a front for the Democrats and Soltz is a conservative. Roll Eyes
