ALEXANDER STATEMENT ON NATIONAL AD ATTACKING GENERAL PETRAEUS

Posted on September 10, 2007

"It’s disgusting and disheartening that our national debate has sunk to such a new low. I know General Petraeus, and we Tennesseans know him as the commander of the 101st Airborne Division and as a patriot. He has served his country for 30 years, spending the last several years mostly in Iraq away from his family so that the rest of us can live better lives here in the United States. We should hear his message rather than attack his character before he even delivers his message.”
