Insight into Integrity
Considering the goings on with Congress essentially calling General Petraeus a liar, I thought the excerpt below was appropriate.
"It appears we have appointed our worst generals to command forces, and our most gifted and brilliant to edit newspapers. In fact, I discovered by reading
newspapers that these editor/geniuses plainly saw all my strategic defects from the start, yet failed to inform me until it was too late. Accordingly, I am readily
willing to yield my command to these obviously superior intellects, and I will, in turn, do my best for the "Cause" by writing editorials - after the fact."
- Robert E. Lee, 1863
