...and he wants to run for President
Not only was General Petraeus wrong in 2004 when he wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post just before the election, glowing in its praise of progress in Iraq.
Now we learn he doesn't have the respect of all his colleagues. Seems he's a bit of a sycophant.
This is the glorious warrior whom Senators and Congresspersons alike, unanimously praised his character, his capabilities and his record of service to this country?
He seems like an opportunist to me. And what about the basic question about how a soldier, given a mission by his commander, is capable of judging his own performance.
And don't let's get started on benchmarks.
