petraeus-bush.jpg If there was any doubt to the US public that Gen. Petraeus was being used a puppet for Bush's war---it should be gone now. Brit Hume of FOX Propaganda was granted an exclusive interview with the general, who is supposed to be giving an honest assessment of the "surge" and the state of affairs in Iraq. Bush might have well as given Rush Limbaugh the honors. No longer can the administration claim he is the voice of reason or not acting as an echo chamber for their plan to keep the surge and the war going as long as possible.

"On Fox News Sunday this morning, host Chris Wallace announced the interview:

WALLACE: Now a special program note. Tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. eastern on the Fox News Channel, Brit will have an exclusive interview with General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker about the state of the Iraq war and their testimony to Congress. Please be sure to watch."

The American people already have little faith in his report and this event should seal the deal. If he was truly non-partisan, then this interview would never be taking place.
