    after his May 13 statement.  The findings showed no WMD trailers.  Nonetheless, the Bush Administration continued to repeat that falsehood, and Petraeus would have been aware they were falsehoods.  

    It sounds to me like both you and the General faced the same dilemma.  What does a soldier do when he knows that policy is based in lies?  I'm saying Petraeus stayed silent, and contributed to the deception, and was rewarded for that.  He can keep his mouth shut, but he's no paragon of virtue for it.

    You made your own choice for your own reasons, and must also live with that decision.
