God Speed, David Petraeus
Under his command al Qaida in Iraq has been decimated, the surge worked, and the stage has been set for Iraqi political reconciliation.
His critics on the left have done everything they could to diminish his accomplishments and even question his patriotism. Moveon.orggers once famously asked in a full-page ad if Petraeus had "Betrayed us?" In so doing, they revealed themselves for who and what they are.
Petraeus has proven what he is; a brilliant general and an American hero.
