Of course there are questions, General "Betray Us"
General Petraeus spent the weekend beating George Bush's war drum. In an interview he declared that there was "no question" but that Iran was aiding the war effort against the US. Without offering any real evidence, he repeated the phrase, in a technique perfected by the Bush White House.
Be prepared, this week, as the conservative press echoes those claims, again and again. And remember, if you say it often enough, people will believe, as they did in WMDs, Iraq 9/11 attackers, Orange terror levels, no torture...
Frankly, I don't know, at this point, how anyone can believe anything that comes out of the Pentagon, or out of any one in the Bush administration.
