We Can’t Hear Petraeus!! [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
So you think technology is bad in Iraq? The U.S. House of Representatives can’t get the commanding general a working mic in Washington, D.C. Ike Skelton seems to be offering to read his statement for him…. he should have stayed in Baghdad.
Completely embarrassing. we’ve been waiting for this since spring, and they didn’t think to check the technology before Petraeus and Crocker made the trip.
Maybe it’s because they thought all he’d need to do was lip-synch…
