Brought over from the ATRW thread:I’ve been thinking about Petraeus’s comments about the church burning the moslem book. I suspect, I cannot know, that Petraeus has been ordered to say something - anything - to try to dissuade that from happening. Who has the authority to order P to do anything? No, not his wife! General P has been ordered to speak against it by Caligula. Caligula is personally outraged by the church’s protest, probably tried to order some authority, police perhaps, FBI to stop it, found out he can’t do that and then ordered Petraeus to jump into the fray.

That is the only way General P’s comments make sense to me. General P has made his career out of protecting our first ammendment rights. We don’t say, “please don’t hurt me! I won’t do such-and-such.” We speak out and we protest. We’ve protested the enemies during other wars. The proper response is to hit the enemy harder, not wimpy roll over.

That’s the way I see it.

Since when are general's allowed to comment on anything remotely political?

Or does that rule now only apply to comments Obama doesn't approve of?
