Last night Jon Stewart did what the media fails to do: namely, take General Petraeus' long record of rosey predictions into account when judging the accuracy and objectivity of his report on Iraq.
John Amato: Bush and the Republicans all hid behind the General's skirt to buy themselves more time so they could continue a sustained presence in Iraq until he leaves office. Meanwhile, CentCom Chief Fallon had this to say about him:
“an ass-kissing little chickensh*t” and added, “I hate people like that”, the sources say. That remark reportedly came after Petraeus began the meeting by making remarks that Fallon interpreted as trying to ingratiate himself with a superior.
Sen. Webb will be asking Carl Levin to call Fallon in to testify. Smells like Armageddon to me.
