Rudy Giuliani Watch: Hillary Clinton Smeared General Petraeus

Rudy CALLS OUT Hillary:

Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani on Thursday accused Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton of participating in “character assassination” for questioning Gen. David Petraeus about his assessment of progress in Iraq.

Clinton, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, was one of several Democrats and some Republicans who expressed skepticism with President Bush’s top military general’s more positive outlook on Iraq than recent independent reviews.

Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker told Congress Iraq remains largely dysfunctional but said violence in recent months had decreased since the influx of 30,000 additional troops earlier this year.

“The reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief,” Clinton said Tuesday.

Remember the MoveOn.org’s full page New York Times ad that the Times sold the Left-Wing “Independent” Organization?

Campaigning in Georgia, Giuliani assailed Clinton for the second straight day and tried to link her to a newspaper ad from the liberal anti-war group MoveOn critical of Petraeus. The ad accused Petraeus of “cooking the books” for the White House. “General Petraeus or General Betray Us?” it asked, playing off his name.

The Rudy Quotes:

  • “We believe, unlike Hillary Clinton, that General Petraeus is telling the truth,” Giuliani said.
  • “What I don’t think should happen in political discourse is the kind of character assassination that MoveOn.org participated in in calling him General Betray Us, that The New York Times gave them a discount to do and that Hillary Clinton followed up on with an attack on his integrity.”
  • “It is time for Americans to really insist that American politicians move beyond character assassination and this is exactly what they attempted to do with General Petraeus.”
  • “Maybe you can disagree with his tactics,” Giuliani said of Petraeus. “I agree with them, but you have no right to disagree with his integrity.”
  • “Their excessive political zeal led them to character assassination,” he said.

The ad Rudy will be running in the New York Times tomorrow will be posted as soon as it is available.
