Video: CIA Director Petraeus Branded War Criminal By Protesters

Former Army general and CIA director David Petraeus was chased down the street by student protesters earlier this week, while on his way to teach his first class at the City University of New York’s honors college.

Warning: Graphic Language

“You’re a war criminal!” several students shouted as Petraeus walked down the street.

Patraeus, who recently quit his position at the CIA, took a job at CUNY in what some believe was an attempt to fix his poor public image. Patraeus immediately faced scrutiny after it was revealed that he would be earning an annual salary of $200,000. In an attempt to quell his critics, Patraeus later agreed to work for only $1 per year.

“Every class, David!” other students yelled, alluding to more protests.

Best known for his military role in Iraq and Afghanistan, Petraeus has become an increasingly controversial figure in recent years following several scandals. While the official narrative of his resignation at the CIA is said to be related to an extramarital affair, others have alluded that the move was part of a backroom deal to keep Petraeus from testifying about the CIA’s role in the Benghazi incident.

Petraeus’s long history as a Council on Foreign Relations member and frequent attendee of the annual Bildeberg Group conference provides an insight to where his allegiance lies. Earlier this year, Petraeus presented the Intrepid Freedom Award to noted war criminal Henry Kissinger, calling Kissinger his “friend and hero.”

Petraeus also recently threw his support behind military strikes in Syria, urging congress to approve President Obama’s initial plan. Petraeus argued that Assad’s chemical attacks would make Iran and North Korea more likely to use similar weapons despite no credible evidence actually linking Assad to the chemical attack. The growing evidence, which includes admissions of the attack, continue to point to the Al Qaeda rebels.

Despite the protest, Petraeus remained calm as he ignored the group. Petraeus’s course, “Are we on the threshold of the (North) American Decades?”, will be taught to one class of 15 to 20 students per semester.
