General David Petraeus is head of the US-led multinational force in Iraq which is fighting against the terrorist insurgents in the civil war there. He was unanimously confirmed by the US Senate, particularly because of his long-established reputation for honesty.

Senator Hillary Clinton, who helped appoint him, called him a liar when he gave his September 2007 report on President Bush's "troop surge". [1] In response to this report, Petraeus was the victim of liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org's "vicious"[2] attack campaign subsidized by the New York Times[3] which contributed a monetary discount for an advertisement, without foundation, entitled "General Petraeus or General Betray Us"? The accusation of treason sparked so much controversy that even the Democrat-controlled Senate passed a resolution condemning the attack on General Petraeus.[4]
