Regarding the Petraeus Report

I haven't thus far commented on the Petraeus Report, since there were many minds greater than mine doing thusly.

For a great compendium of my sentiments, please check out Colonel Joe Repya's assessment over at True North.

It at once amazes and depresses me that elected officials of the United States of America, sworn to protect America and its Constitution, would, along with their political party of choice, so go out of their way to attempt to engineer the surrender of our nation during a time of war. Even so far out of their way as to label General David Petraeus, a man who has invariably served his nation with honor, a traitor.

Said Harry Reid,

"Before the report arrives in Congress, it will pass through the White House spin machine, where facts are often ignored or twisted, and intelligence is cherry-picked," said Reid.

Reid even had the audacity to call Petraeus a liar!:

"He has made a number of statements over the years that have not proven to be factual,"
Reid said.

Talk about a fucking pot calling the kettle black! Never, in my born days, would I expect such traitorous--YES I SAID IT--TRAITOROUS behavior coming from elected public officials supposedly sworn to protect and defend the United States!

And yes, I WILL continue to question their patriotism, and so should any American who has the courage to look at their rhetoric and actions in an honest light.

The time for BDS and selling out our nation is passed. I call on every American to proclaim loudly and clearly to the leadership of the democrat party: YOU ARE TRAITORS!

Perhaps Congress in 1798 had a good idea when they passed the Alien & Sedition Acts.

To go out of their way as they do to undermine our mission during a time of war tells me unequivocally that there are those in the democrat party who must clearly hate this country. So much, in fact, that they are willing to hate it clean out of existence.
