*** Oh PLEASE!! Patreaus himself came out and said it was the VIDEO!! He is a LYING LIAR COWARD DEMOCRAT also!! Why do you not think so after this?? ***
Well for one thing I haven't read or heard anything about Gen Petraeus publicly saying the attack was over that dumb video clip. Granted that I haven't spent as much time of late on FR as I normally do so maybe I missed some article but still, I've haven't heard zero 'from him' or the CIA. It's all been from Obama, the State Dept and Leon Panetta.
Then given Gen Petraeus' military career and all the Command Posts in his years as an officer that he's had, including many in actual Combat, I would hardly say - even in the slightest - that the man is a 'Coward', nor a 'Liar'.

Now 'cowards', don't go into the Combat Arms like Infantry or Airborne and 'cowards' aren't awarded a Bronze Star with a V for VALOR during combat. And 'liars' don't earn a Ranger Tab.
As to the General being a 'democrat', nobody knows that, period. A Professional Soldier serves every POTUS no matter whom it is. And considering he graduated from West Point in 1974, becoming a Second Lieutenant in the US Army his first CIC was Richard M Nixon - soon to be followed by Gerald Ford. Then Carter, Reagan, Bush41, Clinton, Bush43, then Obama.
Okay you don't like him for serving under Obama, fine. But kindly don't slander an honorable Soldier. Call him a jackass, an asshat, or a jerk. But coward and liar? ... no.
