The story’s been out there for a couple of days and I’ve yet to hear a retraction by Petraeus or a comment saying he’s being misquoted.
do you have any evidence that he is?
Just a comment on the title, which is meant to draw an emotional response versus what the article and quotes actually say. He never said he ‘backs’ closing it in his quotes. His statements are more nuanced. Typical reporting, they tell us what we should think about the statement versus just giving the information and letting us determine what he meant. His statement is pretty neutral and uncontroversial, however, just scanning the headlines, one wouldn’t get that impression.
