In his own words… Typical political garbage from the left. Democratic U.S. Senator Charles Chuck Schumer from the state of New York commits treason and/or sedition on the floor of the United States Senate. Lt. General David Petreus received 100% approval from the U.S. Senate for his appointment and execution of the serge in Iraq and while only a few days before his report comes out the left is already telling us that our soldiers are incompetent and that the report is not legitimate, that it is the “Bush Report”.
And let me be clear: the violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge. The lack of protection for these tribes from al Qaeda made it clear to these tribes, “We have to fight al Qaeda ourselves.” It wasn’t that the surge brought peace here. It was that the warlords had to create a temporary peace here on their own. And that is because there was no one else there protecting them.
Here he gets spanked on O’Reily
