(Newser) – Rudy Giuliani linked Hillary Clinton to the controversial newspaper ad attacking David Petraeus in a new Internet attack ad of his own. In the spot, called “She Changed,” the GOP presidential hopeful says the New York senator shifted her position on the war and criticized Petraeus, both for political gain, the Politico says.

In a newspaper ad published yesterday, Giuliani accuses Clinton of “spewing venom” at Petraeus during congressional hearings, the AFP reports. MoveOn will sponsor its own Giuliani attack. Continuing its “Betrayal” series, which had Republicans fuming after it labeled Petraeus “General Betray Us,” the liberal organization will scold Giuliani for skipping sessions of the Iraq Study Group to fundraise.
