    Maher: Isn’t a dirty trick on the American people when you send a military man out there to basically do a political sell-job?”

    Hagel: It’s not only a dirty trick, but it’s dishonest, it’s hypocritical, it’s dangerous and irresponsible. The fact is this is not Petraeus’ policy, it’s the Bush’s policy. The military is — certainly very clear in the Constitution — is subservient to the elected public officials of this country.. but to put our military in a position that this administration has put them in is just wrong, and it’s dangerous.”
  2. This is a strange criticism. Petraeus was reporting on a military mission. If they had sent the Sec. of Defense, no doubt there would have been legitimate complaints that the congressmen wanted to hear from the general in charge. At least Hagel is retiring, and we will be spared any more of this pompous windbag.
  3. To put it mildly!!
  4. So a senator who criticizes the Bush war is a "pompous windbag." What about the person who calls General Betrayus "a**-licking little chicken-sh*t?" What do you call him?
