Sign our act.ly petition to fight back against General Petraeus' pro-war spin: http://act.ly/2as

NBC's David Gregory just interviewed Petraeus on Meet the Press, and he failed to challenge the general when he claimed we were "making progress." We've got to push the other journalists on Petraeus' schedule to expose his true agenda: extending this disastrous war.

General Petraeus is on a media tour to sell the idea that the U.S. military is "making progress" in Afghanistan, a well-worn message aimed at convincing elites to extend this brutal, futile war. If the media fail to ask hard questions, there's a chance he could get what he wants: the freedom to extend an extremely unpopular war that's not making us safer.

CBS' Katie Couric is next in line to talk to Petraeus during his high-profile spin campaign, so we'll start with her. Sign this petition to Couric and push her to ask tough questions about Petraeus' claims of "progress" and his attempt to extend the Afghanistan War.
