"It was absolutely unacceptable for MoveOn.org to ridicule and question the motives and allegiances of America's senior military commander in Iraq. Army Gen. David H. Petraeus is trying to win a war as quickly and with as few casualties as possible. He and the men and women under his command must remain focused on the enemy at their front and not the naysayers at home.
"Equally disgusting are those who would use the personal attack on General Petraeus for political gain. Americans may have become desensitized to dirty politics in Washington, but we can still recognize when innocents are being used. Our brave servicemen and women are not political pawns. They serve selflessly to protect our nation and every freedom we enjoy. The right to free speech is not permission to exploit."
