General Petraeus and 'Vets on the Hill'

Today, Vets for Freedom will bring our message to Congress, when over 400 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans descend on Capitol Hill for "Vets on the Hill."

Our guys will enjoy breakfast with the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Richard Myers, before heading to Capitol Hill for a bi-partisan press conference with two-dozen members of Congress, including Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, and Lindsay Graham.

General Petraeus will be making his report to Congress.

It is a very big day on the hill. We are in this to win and I am grateful for the Vets who have gone to Washington to remind Congress of that!!!

I've been watching the testimony on C-SPAN all morning, but they just cut away to the House. Dang.

The first two hours was pretty much business as usual...nothing new. The same asshats are still asshats, and the Good Guys appear to be winning. But I'm biased, eh?

Buck, you summed it up well - but I have to say, Levin was beyond disrespectful at the opening...

Flag, Thanks for your support. We had a great day in Washington. Whether or not we changed any minds, we made sure we were heard. It took me most the day yesterday but I finally got the full post up!

I was really impressed by Pete Hegseth, the Executive Director of Vets for Freedom. He was on the Bill O'Reilly show last Friday with Laura Ingraham who also had on that vile Medea Benjamin from Code Pink. Pete really put that little commie witch in her place.

Vets for Freedom's web site is very impressive too:

I would encourage anyone with a few dollars to spare to consider donating to this effort.
