I keep thinking there must be a clever (0.00 / 0)
way to link Petraeus to Powell. I remember how Powell was hailed as heroically honest and reliable and honorable, and that -he-, surely, would never carry water for the weasels of the Bush administration. If Powell said it, it was true. Almost axiomatically.

And now we have Petraeus discussed in identical terms, and somehow--shockingly!--nobody publicly remembers how this played out with Powell.

Props (4.00 / 1)
Props to Zack Space for handling that question extremely well.
