Even before his testimony was given, Democrats contended that Gen. David Petraeus' report to Congress on the surge was a put-up job with a pre-ordained conclusion. The Democrats in action organization, Moveon.org, ran a full page advertisement in the the New York Times proclaiming General Petraeus as a betrayer of America.
"If liberals are not traitors, their only fallback argument at this point is that they're really stupid." That's how our take-no-prisoners commentator, Ann Coulter, ends her new column today, after using the left's own words to highlights their errors.
Coulter points out that "(d)emocrats yearn for America to be defeated on the battlefield and oppose any use of the military – except when they can find individual malcontents in the military willing to denounce the war and call for a humiliating retreat. "
"After citing many pre-war concerns of pundits, Coulter notes: "We took Baghdad in about 17 days flat with amazingly few casualties. There were no al-Qaeda attacks in America, no attacks on Israel, no invasion by Turkey, no attacks on our troops with chemical weapons, no ayatollahs running Iraq. We didn't turn our back on the Kurds. There were certainly not 100,000 dead American troops. ..."
Continues Coulter: "Now our forces are killing lots of al-Qaeda jihadists, preventing another terrorist attack on U.S. soil, and giving democracy in Iraq a chance - and Democrats say we are 'losing' this war. I think that's a direct quote from their leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, but it may have been the Osama bin Laden tape released this week. I always get those two confused."
