It's interesting seeing how offended they get

Hastings initially goes after none of the people present, but they all take offense on Petraeus' behalf. Not exactly about to handle their illusion of him as a great general get dispelled, aren't they? And then General Kimmit tries to assume seniority? "I was there recently, and blah blah blah," assuming that Hastings hasn't been there. It is sad when they cannot argue back logically.

great job Hastings

I love that not only did he make his point about Petraeus being a evil warmongering murderer but that Patraeus also did a crappy job and screwed up the unconstitutional war in Iraq. And then he told Piers that his colleague at cnn was a shill for the pentagon,then tells Kimmit that he is also a shill and a profiteer from our illegal and immoral wars(murder),do you think Mike will get invited back anytime soon LOL?


he killed it! i havent seen a

he killed it! i havent seen a public pundit clubbing that well done in a long ass time.


I would never speak to a general that way... man.

Oh, absolutely ..

.. we should all be groveling in front of our benevolent overlords in the Military Industrial Division of the Corporate Empire of America (CEA)

How dare some insignificant, cipher, mortal INDIVIDUAL tell such disrespectful truths in an impertinent, boastful way to an elite leader of the world such as He.

Curses to this Hastings! Off with his head!

Why the hell not?


Jury Nullification is a power of the last resort against tyranny.


Because I come from a military family. Just because you disagree doesn't mean you should be disrespectful... Jussayin.

The thing that I like about

The thing that I like about Piers is that he is still an amateur. If it were Wolfe or other senior, Hastings wouldn't get any where near of a full sentence without cutoffs.

Who is this rock star!?!!!!

Michael Hastings kicked ass! Is this guy a liberty supporter? First I've seen of him. If he's an advocate for liberty/sanity against the neocons/corporate welfare shills, we have another good spokesperson. LOVED this interview.


You've never heard of him? That's strange.

This is the same guy whose Rolling Stone interview of General McChrystal (either in Afghanistan or Germany) couple of years back caused a big scandal AND forced McChrystal to resign. He's also the guy who had the misfortune of having his fiancee die in Iraq in a crossfire ambush. She was also working in Iraq, as him. (Although I don't know details of if they were working together, and if he was physically present with her when she died.)

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

Scathing article re Petraeus

I think it's good that this incident is causing some reflection on Iraq & Afghanistan ~ along with the media's coverage thereof.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

I was so happy to hear

I was so happy to hear Hastings call out Barbara Star! That heiffer is a complete tool of the MIC! Kathryn Herridge at Fox is another. All these reporters do is tell us what the Pentagon wants us to know. It is like the Pentagon is contracting out PR.

When will the Emperor Obama declare Petraeus damnatio memoriae?

When will the Emperor Obama declare Gen. Petraeus damnatio memoriae -- that no man or woman shall ever speak his name aloud or think of him in his or her head; that even the memory or dream of the General is a crime against the state and the Emperor's decree!?

ERASE Petraeus from history! Blot him from Memory! Wipe his image from photographs! Paint over his face on murals and mosaics.

Let forgetfulness seize him and never let him go, forever more...

(Cause after all, if he's around, its F'in easier to learn about all the crimes he and Obama committed all over the world!)
