    Works just as well for Republicans and conservatives coming from YOUR words.
    I haven't said whether I believe him or not, but your representatives ran him through the ringer before he even testified. Don't try that reverse **** on me, Republicans didn't sit there an tear the man down like Hillary Clinton, and I'm thinking even our current VP.

    From the article,

    Petraeus didnít say which parts of the Geneva Conventions he thought he and other administration officials had violated.

    Repeating yourself three or four times does not make your point valid. You are assuming much more than you should based on a negative.

    No he was the one who made the statement I was just pointing it out, it is on the Good General to name the Violation and in the story he can't hence no story.

    What are you talking about have you read the article he state's that he doesn't know what Accord we violated hence their is no story, please explain how you can have a story saying that the US Violated the Geneva Accords when the person who is making these statements can't even name one violation.

    Don't you want to know what he claims was violated, or are you okay with a broad, non-specific declaration?

    I think he'd rather know where Dunkin' Donuts is.
