    Did you notice the title of the video?:

    "CUNY students confront war criminal David Petraeus"

    Huffington Post might want to change that if they don't want to be sued.

    I love a righteous protest but this wasn't it. Though the paying of six figure salaries to folks such as the general to teach one class a semester is absurd.

    It's not their video, they just linked to it from Youtube.

    Yeah...I noticed that too. I'm guessing that it was the hecklers/protestors that took and posted the video, explaining its title.

    That was despicable behavior on the part of those college students.

    I understand that it wasn't a Huffington Post video, but they actually do have the ability to provide a link to it without using that as the title.

    In other words, it is their choice.

    Of course. That doesn't mean it's their editorial voice, nor that they would be sued for it.

    That is mild compared to stuff in the Sixties. Never could understand how jumping into someone's face to protest violence made much sense.

    Can't see the video, but I assume they are chanting: "Hey Hey David Pae, How many biographers did you bang today?"

    He handled himself well. How many of you could have been that calm getting ripped apart without trying to physically lay a hand on any of them?

    Yes, they were jackasses. And that really gives jackasses a bad name.

    The General settled for a fee of $ 1 to teach the class. I find it funny that other professors wold complain about his fee arrangement with the amount of work they actually do.
