39. As Eli Said
If they had done the same type of ad when Powell went to the UN, it would have rec'd the same criticism. Yet we all now know how faulty that report was, yet everyone was polite. Perhaps less of it would have kept us put of the war. Petraeus' report was stage crafted to keep us in a war that is already a failure. I believe that the lives that will be lost in the future are worth the loss of civil discourse, which hasn't worked since * got in office.

And you know, I wonder where the hubbub is over Ari Fleischer's nasty little ad which promotes furtherance of the war and beyond?

We are at the point where the squeaky wheel seems to be all the leverage we have left.
