Over at Twonhall, Fred! busts out with a verbal smack down on the Senate Majority Leader and unsurprisingly the results are not pretty. Reid has been reported as calling Marine General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, "incompetent". Of course it goes without saying that a person rising to four star military rank and elevated to the Chair of the US military is most likely a pretty competent individual. He also stated that David Petraeus, the ground commander of the troops in Iraq, "out of touch". Petraeus literally wrote the US Army's Counter Insurgency doctrine and is one of the most highly educated generals in the US military, and is actually on the ground in country - unlike the good Senator.
"Reid has led the attack on the administration, with Nancy Pelosi, charging it lied and tricked America into supporting the war. Ignoring multiple hearings and investigations into pre-war intelligence findings that have debunked this paranoid myth, they accuse an entire administration of conspiracy to trick us into a war. I suppose that's easier for some than admitting that they've flip flopped -- but the fact that Reid says this sinister Republican plot is going to help him elect more Democrats ought to be raising a few flags. Saying General Pace is incompetent doesn't even rank near the top of his bizarre statements."
Of course, Fred also point out Harry Reid voted in support of the war back when this little shindig over in the sand got started up. He also points out that when someone in his position makes idiotic statements like the "war is lost, we can't win", etc. that our good friends over at AL-Jazeera Arab TV like to publicize it - and that makes the job of those young soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines a lot tougher.
