Skip to comments.General David Petraeus to speak in Newburgh, NY on October 31st
Posted on 10/27/2013 1:09:21 PM PDT by ventana
Retired Army Gen. David Petraeus will be the guest of honor at 11 a.m. Oct. 31 at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center at 321 S. William St.
Petraeus is a "hometown boy" from Cornwall that former congressman Ben Gilman takes pride in being the official who appointed to West Point, where he became an honor graduate. After his military career, Petraeus served as director of the CIA.
His visit is hosted by a group of business leaders led by philanthropist Bill Kaplan, who is a friend of the general and proud of his service to our nation. The public is invited.
For information, call the center at 245-4035, where Deirdre Glenn is the executive director. Kaplan is chairman of the center's board of directors.
What is the topic? How I sold out to the New World Order?
Didn’t he swear that the attack in Benghazi was about a video?
Since he was in a position to know better, isn’t that lying before congress?
Guest of honor? How about dishonorable guest?
Trick or Treat!
Might be helpful to us in flyover country.
Topic of discussion: How the military Rules of Engagement are more strict than the average civilian police force.
How is it an “honor” to LEAVE AMERICANS BEHIND IN WAR?
and let them be raped for videos?
and an Ambassador and patriots, at that?
What a shameful end of American integrity
by Petraeus and Obama.
Bill Clinton’s bagman and jihad enforcer. The tip of the spear against Israel.
He’s played all the stoopids to the hilt and is now out of the limelight to wreak havoc as ordered.
He’s giving a speech? I thought discreet emails were more his style...
I wouldn’t walk across the street to hear him
And I used to admire him
Here’s the speech old Dave should give.
“I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I betrayed my oath to my wife. I’m sorry that I made a laughingstock of the West Point Honor Code. I’m sorry that I was so inept that Iraq and Afghanistan are still wrecks. Thank-you.”
I admired him too but he chose to toe the Obama line rather than do what was right for the country. I’ll bet he could blow the lid off this sham presidency.
I never really knew much about him, but he must be of lesser light than his admirers thought.
New York State
Red county in NYS- yes, there are some.
Im sorry. Im sorry that I betrayed my oath to my wife. Im sorry that I made a laughingstock of the West Point Honor Code. Im sorry that I was so inept that Iraq and Afghanistan are still wrecks. Thank-you.
And then will he eat a bullet for an encore?!?
Well, the GEN shouldn’t really worry so much as all of the service academies can no longer live up to their own honor codes.
Does the Honor Code change with time? What good is it then?
From this perspective either drop these so-called Honor Codes, or close down these institutions, and probably both as corrupting and corruptible the obamic influence will be on all the military from hence forward.
