General BetrayUs getting kicked upstairs..


So, is this his reward for being a good soldier for Bush and spinning (there is that word again) the War in Iraq as working just fine?

Me thinks it is. From the CNN writeup:

Army Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, has been chosen to become chief of U.S. Central Command, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Wednesday.

Petraeus replaces Adm. William Fallon, who said last month he was resigning. Fallon said widespread, but false, reports that he was at odds with the Bush administration over Iran had made his job impossible.

In addition, Gates said, Army Lt. Gen. Ray Odierno, commander of the Multinational Corps-Iraq — the No. 2 position in Iraq — is being nominated to fill Petraeus’ post. Odierno has been home from Iraq only for a couple of months, but has agreed to return, Gates said.

The plan is for Petraeus to leave Iraq in late summer or early fall, Gates said, to ensure a smooth transition and plenty of time for Odierno to prepare.

Odierno is the commander of the troop unit that found Saddam in the rathole. He is getting a big Atta-Boy too it seems.
