In response to the increasingly coordinated attempt to discredit General Petraeus' upcoming report, Captain Ed asks:
Which is more likely -- that a career commander would deliberately lie about events in Iraq that already have garnered plenty of independent evidence for success, or that Dick Durbin and Harry Reid would smear the military for their own political gain?
Considering the recent admission that a positive report would be "hurtful" to the party, I think we can safely assume Democrats will only widen the campaign to discredit Petraeus.
My goodness they have become predictable. One need ask only what is in the best interest of gaining power to determine their next move. I would be concerned if they didn't so often miscalculate, which they are doing here, to their own detriment.
