Skip to comments.Daily Kos: General Petraeus Wore Fraudulent Medal
Posted on 09/22/2007 11:31:06 AM PDT by llevrok
Tonight at Daily Kos, the new mainstream voice of the Democratic Party, theyve found a new angle from which to attack General Petraeus: Hey, MoveOn! Petraeus Wore Fraud Medal At Testimony.
Examining General Petraeuss medals, his official bios and then comparing three reports of events on 3/30/2003 in Najaf, Iraq - two by prize-winning embedded journalists and one understood to be by Army personnel (which document this diarist will produce to a responsible party at any time) - this diarist cannot conclude other than that General David Petraeus wore a medal for combat valor in his testimony before Congress that was a sham, propaganda and a dishonor to his troops and nation.
I will be extremely surprised if there is anything to these charges, but its not my area of expertise, so LGF military lizardsplease weigh in.
(shakes head) ping
exactly. they are the biggest hypocrites on earth.
If that's the case, I'm surprised they're not encouraging him to run for POTUS as a democrat.
No specifics given - presumably because it’s a totally unfounded accusation fabricated out of whole cloth.
If true, lets hope he doesn’t take a gun to his head like Admiral JM Boorda did.
Dailiy Kosies is a fool or a liar or both.
General Petraus’s list of decorations

Not true. Daily Kosie author is a fool or a liar.
I doubt that You have any area of EXPERTICE
And here I thought it was they crying we shouldn’t ever question medals? I guess that only applies to John Fraud sKerry.
There you go. Over here folks. Excellent point!
I could probably comment on this if they would identify the Medal they are referring to. Without any specifics you have to assume it’s just a “hoping something will stick” charge. I also doubt that anyone in this group could identify any medal if they are displayed.
Right. General Petraeus didn’t have enough medals, so he picked one up at a pawn shop to beef up the array.Thank goodness for an observant leftie.
I note that his “fruit salad” is missing a vital ingredient: the U.S. Army Good Conduct Medal. So what if he is an officer and a gentleman, and good conduct is assumed? /s/
My head makes a ping noise too, when I shake it. Lack of guacamole, I think, Ali.
I agree. The Kosie founder claimed he was recruited by the CIA a few years back.
Though it comes across as a joke, it is sad Admiral Boorda took his life because of the medal, V for valor he wore, was in question.
As others pointed out, Kerry has 3 purple hearts. Self inflicted wounds.
Good conduct medal are not awarded to officers.
expetise, not expertiCe.
and I am the poster, not the Kos wingbat who developed this loonie idea.
