"This time Gen. Petraeus returns to Washington having led one of the most remarkably successful military operations in American history."
But have you seen who really said it? Lindsay Graham and Joe Lieberman. Honest to pete they really did. And then the Wall Street Journal published it with a straight face.
So, I guess suck it Jimmy Doolittle, or for that matter anyone who survived the Normandy Invasion.
I'm off to google the word "hyperbole".
