    Blasts might be too strong of a word. He basically said he agrees with their overall message, but thinks the wording is bad. The general isn't a traitor, he's just wrong. The rhetorical equivalent of a light slap on the hand.

    Of course Pravda...errrr, the Register headlined it "blasts", then proceeds to call Moveon.org a "left leaning advocacy group". Hahahahaha.....ok, if by left leaning you mean all the way over, practically horizontal to the left.

    There is a big difference between calling someone a traitor and saying that they are wrong. A BIG, BIG difference. One is acceptable in civil discourse and the other is not.

    I agree, but there is also a difference between blasting someone (who incidently warrants it) and treating them with kid gloves.

    I agree he didn't "blast" MoveOn.org. If the "father of all bombs" is a blast, maybe he just dropped the "mother of all bombs" on them?
