David Petraeus Gets Heckled by CUNY Students on His Way to Class [VIDEO]

Categories: CIA, Kids

Yesterday a pretty insane video surfaced of David Petraeus making his way to class with CUNY students hectoring him the whole way. We get it, kids. Petraeus did some bad stuff as Director of the CIA. But compared to that crazed heckling, the guy comes off looking positively angelic. See the whole video after the jump.

Why would anyone sign up for a lecture by this awful man?

"We get it, kids." (What kids are you talking about, Mr. Brooks?)

"...the guy comes off looking positively angelic." ?

He is running along like the coward he is. A coward by nature, shooting people from a safe distance, knowing no shame or regrets.

What? Are you serious? Angelic? This guy is a warmonger and should have no place on campus in any role, what so ever! They should have thrown tomatos and rotten apples at him.

How dare he show his face!

Perhaps some background is in order:


Petraeus is being paid ~2x the annual professor's salary to teach a 'seminar', with the help of an assistant or two (or three...).  


It's on something which he is not an authority.


The course seems to be the equivalent of an infomercial, material developed by some corporate 'think tank'.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was the opposite to other officers, cadets, trainees, etc. It made him a great leader, but also a douche. This is nothing to him, though.

@wellentreiben You, sir, and everyone with your mentality, absolutely disgust me. What's more cowardly, joining the military and being put in harms way to protect the rights and freedoms you enjoy, or spewing hate about a man that's done so while having done absolutely nothing to deserve either of those?

@Barry_D you're totally right. I suppose what's most troubling about this video is that the students' behavior did let any of Petraeus's many sins come through.

@NoneYaBusiness @wellentreiben Yes, the students got their freedoms and they haven't wasted their time to use them.

If you don't like that, then maybe you should tell the military to stop defending those freedoms.

@Guest @NoneYaBusiness @wellentreiben  Or, maybe they could actually do something to earn the freedoms that they seem content to let other people sacrifice for. These students are no better than the people that spit on soldiers coming back from Vietnam, and I have no sympathy for them whatsoever.
