Despicable ad

The General Betray Us ad that ran this morning was despicable. should retract the ad and issue an immediate apology.

While it is entirely appropriate to debate the effectiveness of the administration's policy in Iraq and to point out its previous misjudgments, there is no justification for questioning General Petraeus' honor. Reasonable, rational people can be motivated by the best intentions and still disagree. should contribute whatever reasoned arguments it can to the national debate over Iraq and move away from character assassination.
