General Betray Us? A Viewpoint.

September 11, 2007 - the VIEWPOINT would like to call attention to the fact that General Petraeus' hearings began yesterday on September 10th. One day before September 11th. Is it strictly coicidental these dates should be so closely tied?

Strong feelings are stirred as we collectively recall the mental images, the outrage, the sadness and the fear of an attack on our soil. The VIEWPOINT's perspective finds these strong feelings being used to fashion a smokescreen, rattling Americans, possibly to the point of overlooking the information presented; that less than half of the benchmarks set out for Iraq have been met.
