Is he stupid or lying?

Coalition forces have halted the Taliban march in parts of Afghanistan, top US commander General David Petraeus said Tuesday, even though he warned their fragile success could still be undone.

In an upbeat assessment which contrasted with more skeptical comments from the US intelligence services, Petraeus said that four months before US troops begin to withdraw from the country he was optimistic about the course of the fight.

Anyone making "an upbeat assessment" of our mission in Afghanistan, contrary to the "more skeptical comments from the US intelligence services", is either stupid or lying.
