Retired Army Gen. David Petraeus apologized to Congress on Tuesday for sharing classified information with his biographer and mistress, Paula Broadwell. It was his first public testimony before lawmakers since resigning as CIA director.
Petraeus appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee, offering his recommendations for how the U.S. should address what he called a revolutionary upheaval that is unparalleled in its modern history.
He said the progress achieved so far in fighting Islamic State militants in Iraq has been inadequate and suggested the U.S. increase support to Iraqi security forces and Sunni tribal and Kurdish fighters. In Syria, he recommended the U.S. take a harder stance against President Bashar Assad. He supported setting up enclaves protected by coalition airpower where moderate Sunnis could be supported, civilians could find refuge and additional forces could be trained.

A disgraced officer who thought with his johnson? Exactly what validity might his recommendations have?
More than the witch that should be in jail.
Now if we can get Clinton some hard time for sharing classified information with America’s enemies we might be getting some where.
the plan all along has been to undermine Iraq. Politics before country....
not sorry he cheated on his wife, not sorry he set a poor example as a leader, just sorry for the pillow talk
Screw him. Oh wait a minute...
Did he apologize for giving her anything else?
I guess the apology was the most important part of this story? My God we are living in stupid time!
Hillary and Bill Clinton apologized for selling America's Top-Top-Secret missile and weapon designs to China at such a low price.
"We are very sorry that we did not get a much higher price for the valuable military designs they we sold to China.
At the time we thought our price was all they would pay but we now know we could have charged them much, much more."
Bad deals like this are just one of the many reasons we left the White House dirt poor.
We thought we would be filthy rich but it turned out that we were just filthy."
In the first half of the 40’s that would have gotten him an invitation to a firing squad or a federal necktie party.
His idea of setting up security zones to rescue civilians is good.
Oh, he’s sorry he got caught and suffered a few consequences.
Yeah, we tried that. After half a billion dollars we've got six soldiers to show for it.
He should have changed his name to Clinton and all would be ok
All would be forgiven, if you’d come out and tell the truth about what really happened the night of Sept 12, 2012. Let the world know what your boss and counterpart at the State Dept were doing that night and no one will give a sh*t what you gave that broad.
Oh, please. His goal is a North American Union and they are asking HIM for advice?
“Oh, please. His goal is a North American Union and they are asking HIM for advice?”
Our elected *leaders* are quite alright with the destruction of the United Staes to make way for the North American Union too.
That’s right, mc-lame is the chairman.
