The Senate has passed an amendment sponsored by Senator Cornyn that condemns the recent “General Betray-Us” ad by MoveOn.org. The vote was 72-25.
The amendment was to:
To express the sense of the Senate that General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq, deserves the full support of the Senate and strongly condemn personal attacks on the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all members of the United States Armed Forces.
The following Senators, all Democrats, voted against condemning such attacks on General Petraeus and our troops:
Akaka, Bingaman, Boxer, Brown, Byrd, Clinton, Dodd, Durbin, Feingold, Harkin, Inouye, Kennedy, Kerry, Lautenberg, Levin, Menendez, Murray, Reed, Reid, Rockefeller, Sanders, Schumer, Stabenow, Whitehouse, Wyden
Obama and Biden didn’t vote. Of those Democrats who did, a majority voted against Cornyn’s amendment.
