    General David Petraeus, the most celebrated American soldier of his generation, is to leave his post as commander of US and Nato forces in Afghanistan. The Times can reveal that the Pentagon aims to replace General Petraeus, who was appointed less than eight months ago, by the end of the year. Sources have confirmed that the search for a new commander in Kabul is under way.

    Remember that Petraeus took over last year from General McChrystal, whose Rolling Stone interview criticizing the President forced him to resign/be fired.

    Wouldn't jump the gun on this to quick. I've seen no other stories, nor heard any talk about it.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I'm seeing reports that the Pentagon is denying that he's leaving

    He is too good a man to work with Obama, I'm surprised he didn't quit a long time ago.
    How is obama working out for you?

    The problem is some men are so intent to do the right thing that having their hands tied is not acceptable to them.

    We think alike. What a candidate he would be---a man of honor and integrity. I don't see how he can salute the commander in chief.

    Because that is what those of us who have spent time in the military would do. Obama, like it or not is the civilian leader of our armed services and every member of the military, when they salute the CIC, they are also saluting the people of the United States.
