  •  My take was that President Obama was less (5+ / 0-)

    trying to insulate General Petreus than to assure the rest of us. Sorta like a bank president saying that, yes, there had been embezzlement, but folks funds were safe in their accounts.

    Of course I have no way of knowing, but I thought the president appreciated Petreus's work but viewed him politically with some wariness. The real supporters have been the neocons, haven't they?

    It matters not how small the beginning may seem to be: what is once well done is done forever. Henry David Thoreau, in Civil Disobedience
