Gen. David Petraeus Passes Out in Senate Hearing
Matt | On 15, Jun 2010
General David Petraeus was on Capitol Hill today in a hearing testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee.
From the video you can see that Gen. Petraeus fell ill and fainted right at the table in the sitting position while taking questions from Senator John McCain (R-Arizona). You can’t actually see Petraeus black out, but the look of HORROR that comes over McCain’s face let’s you know, “Houston, we have a problem here!” Early reports are that Gen. Petraeus is fine and he did walk away from the table on his own.
Stress kills y’all! Take that stuff very seriously!! At some point, he is going to have to set the war down and focus on himself. Passing out in a sitting position is never a good thing. We do hope he will be ok.
