    officer in iraq who introduced the policies petraeus adopted & took the credit for.  

    then he came up with the idea of the "surge" to promote dick cheney's wishes to increase haliburton & blackwater's profits instead of pulling troops out.

    his legend far exceeded his talents.  he was a political hack in a uniform & the proof of that is how quickly the r's singled him out to conduct the iraq war, claiming he was the one who would be telling the wh what to do, while knowing full well he would do whatever the wh (read: cheney) wanted.
