The United States Army today promoted the newest General to assist 4-Star David Petraeus. The new commander is named Gabby Giffords (D-AZ), a freshman Democratic Congresswoman from Arizona. Gabby’s nomination to become an commander of US forces in Iraq came as a large policy push by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Harry Reid (D-NV).
Pelosi was ecstatic after the Democrats rammed through a purely partisan troop withdrawal bill in both houses of Congress this past week. The bill had billions of dollars of unrelated pork barrel projects, including the promotion of Giffords to General. Pelosi could not have been happier that her new General had years of no military experience.
After her victory Gabby quoted her hero Michael Moore by claiming that “There is not a huge terrorist presence in Iraq”. In 2004 Michael Moore went on record saying that there is no terrorist threat to America.
Behind closed doors later in the day with Pelosi, Reid, Jack Murtha, and many prominent liberals, sharing many bottles of wine, the Democrats celebrated their victory as the new commanders of the Iraqi forces…all 283 of them.
It is clear that Giffords knows best about policy in Iraq. Having been on the ground there several times with Petraeus, it is only a matter of time before Gabby is the commander of all U.S. forces stationed in the Middle East.
