Rep. Lantos to Petraeus, Crocker: "The Administration Has Sent You To Convince [US] That Victory Is At Hand…I Don’t Buy It" [VIDEO]


The video to your right is Rep. Tom Lantos' opening statement at the congressional hearing on Iraq featuring General David Petraeus (or Betray Us) and Ambassador Ryan Crocker (or Lying Crock of Shit). This comes from the AP:

The introductory remarks by the lawmakers reflected the deep divisions in Congress over a war that has claimed the lives of more than 3,700 U.S. troops.
Petraeus patiently listened to the politicians for a time before he could speak, the commander of 165,000 troops also heckled and criticized by anti-war critics.
"Tell the truth, general," shouted protesters as the four-star general made his way into the crowded hearing room.
