General Petraeus Leads MNF-I efforts
General David Petraeus was my boss in Iraq when he was chief of MNSTC-I. Guys like William Arkin with the Washington Post were not kind in their assessment or comments when General Petraeus went through hearings and since his assignment. I personnally think General Petraeus is one of the best Leaders I have ever met - I offer this letter as proof of a Leader well suited to be in the lead of our efforts in Iraq.
Its too easy for pundits here in the states to miss the essence of the effort in country by the troops and their leadership. Here we are bombarded with the negative press and defeatist rhetoric... America is at the Mall - Right now in Iraq the soldiers and the leaders are truly serving.
