Petraeus Political Spokesman for Bush
Republicans have had a fit about Move-On.org’s ad changing Petraeus to Betray-us, but Bush put him in this position. The criticism may not be correct, but the Right has no justification for criticizing it because Petraeus is wearing a uniform. He’s not appearing as a soldier; he’s appearing as a spokesman for the administration, and thus must be open to criticism. He and Crocker are Bush’s shills. They deserve to be suspect and must support their testimony with facts. They have been somewhat, but not totally successful. But they have been a lot more successful than would have been Secretary of Defense Gates and Secretary of State Rice, who in an honest world would have been the witnesses. Gates still has some credibility, but Rice has none; she’s been around Bush too long.
