Reid Labels Military Leader 'Incompetent'

Reid Labels Military Leader 'Incompetent'
By: John Bresnahan

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called Marine Gen. Peter Pace, the outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, "incompetent" during an interview Tuesday with a group of liberal bloggers, a comment that was never reported.

Reid made similar disparaging remarks about Army Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, said several sources familiar with the interview.

This is but the latest example of how Reid, under pressure from liberal activists to do more to stop the war, is going on the attack against President Bush and his military leaders in anticipation of a September showdown to end U.S. involvement in Iraq, according to Democratic senators and aides.

Reid, who was bashed by Republicans for suggesting earlier this year that the Iraq war was "lost," is lashing out at top commanders while putting the finishing touches on a plan to force a series of votes on Iraq designed exclusively to make Republicans up for reelection in 2008 go on record in favor of continuing an unpopular war.

Reid, the senators and aides said, does not expect any of the Iraq measures to pass but hopes the effort will drive a deep enough wedge between wavering Republicans and Bush that, by September, Republican senators will break with the president and help end the war.

Wow, typical hack journalism. One word, not even a quote containing the word in the article. Great reporting by the Republico. No wonder no one is reporting it.

And dont ask for references anymore. Your censor deletes them so your beautiful minds dont have to be worried about things such as facts and truth.

ANON.--Stop wettin' the bed. I am the only 'censor' here at DU d'RAT--and I did not delete your marvelous sources, only one or two of your factless, snarky, useless posts--about which I gave you fair warning.

You'll have to do better than offering Leftist blogs, and broken links to back up what you say.

ANON

Censorship is what the Left does. Look to Chavez and Angie Jolie (this woman gets crazier by the day) for instances of censorship.


Anyway...Veri only deletes crap with no merit. I have been banned 12 times (working on 13 now) at Democrat Underground for asking questions and not eating the Global Warming hype.

On Conservative sites such as Frontpage, anyone can post and not be banned or deleted unless they are blatantly rude. At DU, all you have to do is question them and you are gone. Granted...I enjoy being banned, but I have NEVER been rude or mean to anyone there. However, I have been called some rather imaginative names by these 'progressives'

Donal, perfect cartoon for Reid. He does love to throw a lot of gibberish into the cauldron and stir violently.

ANON, I think we get banned from du because of the communist doctrine called "not following the party line." du doesn't allow any discussion that might allow free speech. But it is fun to see how long you can stay online before getting the official boot. My personal best is four minutes.
