As seen on [ profile] bitchphd:

I love Bill Clinton as a politician (although obviously, his politics are rather repugnant ("Repugnant?" you ask? The guy is a war criminal many times over. Nowhere as bad as the Bushes, but still pretty bad.)), and here you can see his him give a good smackdown on the whole Petraeus/Betray Us episode.

Also seen on Bitch, PhD:
Massive epidemic of rapes in the Eastern US: violent gangs rape thousands of American women and girls. "Throughout the country, young and old women, pregnant women and girls as young as six were allegedly raped at roadblocks and in private homes, on their way home from school or in the fields."

Except, of course, that this isn't the Eastern US and American girls and women, but rather the Eastern DRC and Congolese women and girls. Over 4 million died in the heavy part of the conflict, and there is still a massive epidemic of extreme sexual violence against women, and all everyone wants to talk about is Darfur, with its untrue "Arabs attack Christians" trope. This was arguably worse than what has befallen Iraqis, and there are still massive atrocities going on.

The linked article is a speech by Stephen Lewis, who is a lot more articulate than me.

Sorry for the cheap baiting, but bleah.
