I think Senator Hillary's words to General Petraeus when she was questioning him about Iraq would apply to her testimony yesterday: "your report requires a willing suspension of disbelief." The Dems count on the media and the mob to have their back.
She could have said, "I told al Qaeda to lay off the compound but they didn't listen. I was ducking bullets on the tarmac just after my plane landed".
The NYT or some pretty boy on PMSNBC would say, "Hillary is the bravest Secretary of State in history."
