There is a real scandal, it's called Afghanistan.
Back in 2010 General Petraeus sure had a hard on for the U.S. strategy for Afghanistan stating that it was, "fundamentally sound"
Does anyone remember this? On April 23, 2008, Secretary of Defense Gates announced that President Bush was nominating General Petraeus to command U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM)*
I wish I knew why a Bush appointee is head of the CIA, but President Obama, for some unforeseen reason has kept a lot of Bush cronies in his administration.
The General is the leading expert on counter-insurgency terrorism in the country. Weird, that the General is now terrorized by this scandal that will probably ruin his career.
But, I digress.
I know, now we have an exit plan for the war Bush started, that never should have happened. American men and women are still dying, but all the attention is focused on this stupid affair. No one is outraged by another unfortunate American son or daughter who dies on Afghan soil. That war was barely mentioned in the elections. It's like it's already over, except for the people who are still fighting it, and the veterans who live with the consequences every single day. We just passed Veterans Day, with gratitude to the people who fought and still fight for our country. Our gift to our veterans? A leader who's a disgrace, not because he had an affair, but because he was Bush's puppet, parroting strategies that were and still are wrong. But no one is going to acknowledge that. The MSM is all over pointing out how wrong the Generals behavior is, in their puritanical war on sex. The real scandal is the death and destruction going on in Afghanistan. In America, war means never having to say your sorry.
