  •  you & petraeus are now equals (5+ / 0-)

    both of you having written "the book." perhaps you could explain to dave that what he says about insurgencies applies to our troops as well? that we need the support of indigenous populations, that maybe "kicking their asses" isn't they way you get that support? that locking the locals up & torturing them might have the opposite effect? also that our troops mission absolutely must have the support of the taxpayers who are financing it & lies & manipulations of facts is the surest way to lose that support.
    you should bring this up with dave next meeting.
