General Petraeus got rolled.

He was set up as fall guy in case things went south, and there was no way it WASN’T about to fold up like a cheap camping tent.

Whatever personal transgressions General Petraeus may have engaged in, were held over his head, waiting for the moment these items of personal embarrassment could be used against him.

Citizen David Petraeus would have been far better served to have just retired to a country estate somewhere in the Blue Ridge mountains.

He is a Democrat, after all. Which is puzzling, especially after the media and moveon.org smeared him in a pre-planned attack as he gave his report on the Iraqi situation. He had the nerve to actually say we were winning the conflict, so they called him “general betray us”. Democrats at the time were far more hopeful that we were losing dismally, so that they could blame Bush.

I lost all respect for him when he joined the very people who called him Gen Betrayus. Seems he got into bed with something more dangerous than a tramp.
