Transcript-- Ray McGovern on His Arrest and What he Wanted to Ask and Say to General Petraeus

So Petraeus is the guy, for me representing the responsible analysts who kept telling president Obama, look Afghanistan is a fool's errand. You can surge there just as you surged in Iraq it's not going to make any difference. So I get arrested and I was kept in prison overnight and Petraeus gets lauded I don't really have an account of what happened there. But those are big fans you know and I don't know if he wore the merit badges that he had got from Boy Scouts and other Medals. But he has been known to wear those on a civilian suit, but in any case he probably was given many encomia which was very ill deserved and I only regret that I didn't have a chance to ask him some real questions as I did when I asked Rumsfeld in May of 2006 and I suspect, Rob that's one reason why they wouldn't let me in.
