TYT: Michael Hastings tears Petraeus (and Barbara Starr) to shreds on CNN

Posting both Cenk's summary and the full CNN video.

Keep in mind, Barbara Starr is CNN's top Pentagon reporter, and Hastings is saying this on CNN.

1. Dammit, WAR PROFITEERING!

Pitifully, in the (not our) prevailing culture(?) it doesn't matter that the U.S. illegally invaded Iraq and killed 10,000"s of innocent humans. Now the Generals of that war(?) admit that they have gotten wealthy off of that invasion. They continue this rape of Iraq now that they "are in the private sector."
Yet, Petraeus (et al it should be) "steps down" as CIA director (remember pappy bush?) because he got caught fucking.
How twisted the media successfully makes our country and the world.
Petraeus should have been exposed as well as the other "Top Brass" who got wealthy through this invasion.
It is exactly the same as during the DARK AGES when these mercenaries are free to loot and plunder their seized territories.
Now they wear suit and tie and that is supposed to make it legitimate? It is not even "the spoils of war."
It is looting done during and after an illegal invasion that killed thousands of our young people and 20x that many mothers, babies and innocents. How fucking warped that "they" portray this as heroic. My God, wake up!

4. i've never seen a General get called on it like this

Kimmitt was talking about visiting Iraq "as a private citizen", Hastings says to him "I'm glad you are able to make money off of your service."

Has anyone confronted a general like this before? Maybe so, I'd love to see it, I loved this.

5. Maybe the CIA should go back to being a CIVILIAN ONLY organization

 

it appears the Generals can't keep their dicks in their pants.

watching these 2 clowns on surrounding Hastings had me wondering, I wonder how many women they fucked on behind their wive's backs.

it seems endemic in our white male militaristic society, that men think it's not only ok but perfectly normal to lie to their family/wife about affairs and that these 2 guys are defending a man who Hasting's is being way too kind about, Patreaus was a lousy commander in chief and there is ample evidence already that his leadership as head of CIA was non existent.

I say good riddance to a bad waste of American history. sorry Nancy pelosi... I don't like your boy anymore than Hastings does.. did anyone bring up the huge amount of lost billions while we were in Iraq on Patreaus' watch?

someone needs to track the lost money to ms. broadwell's overshore bank accounts. i'm certain there were at least bribes to keep quiet.
