David Petraeus: “We in uniform protect the rights of others to criticize us frankly”

Petraeus shoots down SandersRetired Gen. David Petraeus countered the White House's narrative on Friday that it was "highly inappropriate" to question a four-star general.

Petraeus, who is a close friend of current White House chief of staff John Kelly, told ABC's Martha Raddatz Sunday that all generals are "fair game."

"I think we are all fair game and I certainly experienced lots of that in testimony on Capital Hill during the surge in Iraq and subsequent endeavors in Afghanistan and Central Command," he said. "We in uniform protect the rights of others to criticize us frankly."

Raddatz's interview with Petraeus was relevant Sunday because White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders chastised media members Friday for questioning Kelly's response to Rep. Frederica Wilson, who had complained that President Donald Trump offended the family of fallen soldier Sgt. La David Johnson in a phone call.
