JG Editorial Incorrectly Labels Clinton's Comments as an Attack

In today's Futhermore section the JG editorial board continues the meme that somehow Hillary Clinton attacked the integrity of General Petreus. Go ahead and do a search to see if you can find her actual comments (copying them from below is cheating). Wanna bet that nobody at the JG actually read them before they penned their editorial? Here's what the JG wrote:
With Clinton attacking the integrity of a respected general and Giuliani suggesting the First Amendment doesn’t apply to Clinton – she had “no right to disagree with his integrity” – one cannot help thinking that if these are their respective party’s presidential nominees, it’s going to be a very long campaign.

The JG is once again using the storyline that other traditional media outlets have glommed on to. I've posted Clinton's actual remarks below and I hardly see how it's an "attack" against General Petaeus' integrity:
The reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief.

A vicious "attack" to be sure...

Hey Jeff, haven't you heard. The JG is the "liberal" paper in town. It's true. Just ask MIKE SYLVESTER!!!! and the rest of the LIBERTARIANS!!!!!

Then again, they're probably busy defending GOP candidates, so you might have to wait for an answer to your question.
