In a post yesterday I wondered whether MoveOn.org, which took out a full-page ad in the New York Times titled “General Petraeus or General Betray Us”, felt betrayed by the news that the man they endorsed as a candidate has appointed a man they say was “cooking the books for the White House” to lead the war in Afghanistan.
Apparently, they’ve had a change of heart: Sometime yesterday they removed any mention of the ad from their website. Perhaps they’ve reconsidered and now believe Petraeus to be a model of integrity. Or maybe it’s just that George W. Bush is no longer in the White House. Either way it will be interesting to hear their reason for removing the previous criticisms of the general.
