Today on the hill

Several interesting reads relating to the Petreaus and Crocker report and the moveon stunt.

Michael Yon over at The Tank with The Times Is a Terrible Thing to Waste.

  • General David Petraeus's first day of testimony was completely accurate, and consistent with my recent experiences around Iraq. Everything he said during the public hearing on Monday was measured, cogent, and demonstrably accurate. That his reputation was attacked in an entirely inaccurate full-page advertisement in the New York Times is a smear on the reputation of the New York Times.

Uncle Jimbo at Black Five offers up his opinion.
  • Today the sorriest of the sorry groups on the left, George Soros' Move0n placed a full page ad in the NYT asking

    Gen. Petraeus or Gen. Betray us

Pat Dollard has The Ad The Dems Are Running From - What Dems Are Really Behind It?
  • has been working closely with the Democratic congressional leadership –as an article in today’s Sunday New York Times Magazine makes clear. And consider this comment by a Democratic senator from Friday’s Politico: “‘No one wants to call [Petraeus] a liar on national TV,’ noted one Democratic senator, who spoke on the condition on anonymity. ‘The expectation is that the outside groups will do this for us.’

Also from Pat Dollard Newsweek Smear: “General As Salesman: Petraeus Is Using Dodgy Information”
  • Not surprisingly, Petraeus performed smoothly in his testimony to Congress. But an internal Pentagon report is expected to ‘differ substantially’ from his recommendations on withdrawal from Iraq, NEWSWEEK has learned.

    ( Newsweek is doing some serious sleight of hand...
