Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told liberal bloggers Generals Pace and Petraeus were "incompetent". Captain's Quarters has commentary . It was a revealing moment. About Reid; about the audience he was speaking to; and about a belief in their own competence that is so strong they believe it trumps the experience of the men on the spot, whether enlisted man, junior officer or general officer. It was a thumbnail portrait of a large section of the antiwar movement and a preview of their own capacities. And the funniest part of it, perhaps, is that Senator Reid may not realize what a figure he cuts upon the stage.
