The article reports on the resolution that splits Democrats in the U.S. It is approved by the Senate and it condemns the advertisement that excoriated General David Petraeus for manipulating the books that support the White House's policy on Iraq. The Democrats find it hard to decide whether to endorse an attack on the commanding American officer in Iraq or condemn a group that raises and spends a lot of money for the benefit of liberal causes and candidates.
