Dem Leadership Attacking Military

Increasingly subservient to the Democrat lunatic fringe, Harry Reid has begun to include serving members of the armed forces in his verbal assaults, and, apparently, the MSM are helping him cover it up:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called Marine Gen. Peter Pace, the outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, "incompetent" during an interview Tuesday with a group of liberal bloggers, a comment that was never reported.

Reid made similar disparaging remarks about Army Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, said several sources familiar with the interview.
And Defense Secretary Robert Gates did not recommend Marine general Peter Pace for a second term as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff because of Democratic threats to smear the general.
