    Please stick to the subject at hand...

    The Geneva Conventions, did the US break them.

    You can leave the partisan crap at home.

    Military personnel do not comment in public on policy, and do not criticize the Commander-in-Chief in public. Not ever. Petraeus should not be offering up such evaluations to the media--not while he's on active duty and holding a commission in the US Army.

    Oh yeah, I forgot, Dem president, so some righties have to undermine the presidency any way they can.
    I don't see anyone questioning his credibility.
    I see questions of judgment, and application.

    We'll leave the slander, the Betrayus moments to you folks.

    We very easily could. Apparently we just don't learn our lessons.

    Yeah, you guys don't slander Keep dreaming.

    Maybe you would like to point out where I have called Petrayus a jackass or slandered him. Here's a hint, you can't because I haven't.

    It's funny to watch you throw Petrayus under the bus when he disagrees with you.

    the letter of the law is the law
    the spirit of the law is ones twisting of the law to fit their views/agenda
