Why I can't feel too sorry for David Petraeus

I read the news this past week on Gen. David Petraeus, who went on to become CIA director, and resigned this position the wake of an adultery scandal. He will testify in the Benghazi scandal, but even so, there's reasons why I don't think the right should be coming to his defense too quickly. Diana West provided some of the reasons why Petraeus, contrary to what some on the right might want us to think, otherwise isn't a wholly reliable person because of the dhimmitude he showed off. She's also pointed to what former Colonel Doug MacGregor says about Petraeus, and even reminds us of this disturbing speech he gave where he condemned Koran burning at the behest of the Islamic ragers:

What he did there was predictable but still quite sad. I don't condone burnfests, but considering that any jihadist violence that followed the act was much worse than the Koran burning itself, that's why Petraeus' dhimmitude was very grave.

This is why I'm not feeling too sorry for him for now experiencing whatever problems he's coping with now. Conservatives, if they really want to make this a better world, cannot overlook his very grave capitulation acts, and West certainly isn't.

Update: West has another column up with more to say about this man who is unfit to be general.
