As you no doubt know, the Senate last week voted to confirm Gen. David Petraeus – slandered less than a year ago by MoveOn.org as “Gen Betray Us” — by a 95 to 2 vote. Which two senators voted against Petraeus, despite his historic achievement: dramatically changing U.S. military strategy in Iraq and turning what looked to be America’s defeat at the hands of al-Qaeda and Iran’s proxies into a clear success?
The answer (drum roll please): Senator Tom Harkin (D., Iowa) and Senator Robert Byrd (D., W.V.) voted against him.
But you can bet MoveOn.org knows who their friends are.
