How good was David Petraeus?
New Yorker, by Dexter Filkins

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/10/2012 7:48:51 AM

In the Roman conquest of Gaul, Julius Caesar led his legions into battle wearing a flowing red cape. The cape made him more likely to be killed but easier for his men to see; it served as a reminder of his fearlessness. John Bell Hood, one of the Confederacy’s most audacious commanders, had his left arm shattered at Gettysburg, and lost his right leg at Chickamauga; from then on, he rode into battle tied to his horse.

Petraeus´ military career portrays a textbook example of a REMF.

From the mindset of those on the left, it is difficult to judge anything military with the truth. The left hates the military, sees no reason for armed forces, and constantly sneers at anyone in uniform. They would have us sit like hippies singing, "Kumbala", and chanting peace mantras, ignoring aggression until America is on her knees. Fighting wars is an imperfect science and only as good as the current intelligence, there were numerous errors made during the World wars and Vietnam, but most ended in victories. The defeats or stalemates occur when the soldiers listen to the politicians! Give Petraeus a break, at least he has earned that much!

Looks like he´s destined to be the [ahem] butt of jokes, a la #1´s reply. At least in the short term.

In the long term? --hard to predict, as we can no longer expect an objective evaluation to eventually be published. Particularly after our future Islamicist overlords have beaten America into dhimmitude.

Yo..yo...P4 is a sawed off little ladder climbing prig who married the West Point Commander´s daughter, who brooked no "immoral" behavior from his subordinates. No drinking. No smoking. No banging the natives. The problem is when you lead like that and you stumble and fall there aren´t many folks around willing to give you a "pass" or a hand up. Yo..wiener boy how do you like it NOW??

History will judge him well because history is written by academics. Petraeus is seen as one of them, owing to his PdD from Princeton.

I´m with #3, but not well informed about his command. Put the affair aside and I think he did a good job. Our commanders have to lead with their right hand tied to their left foot. I suspect his wife has been well aware of the emotional difficulties and the proclivities of long term separations.

A very good friend fought in close contact with him for five years as a sniper under his command in Iraq and Iran and says he´d gladly follow him into battle any day. Not sure about the details because much of his work is classified, but he says he´s getting a bad rap and that´s good enough for me.

Short term media assaults are against him, but long term is in his favor! The media will tire and go on to other destructive enterprises.

We´ve had two generals removed because of their relationships with the press - McChrystal and Petreus. A sensible rule would be to never talk to the press.

Did this writer ever wonder how good Bill Clinton was at his job when he was conducting business on the telephone while engaged in sexual activity with Monica in the Oval Office? Mr. Filkins proves only his ingratitude toward the military who gave him the freedom to express his opinions.

Re: #3 and 11: The left leaning author does not knocking Petraeus but touts his counterinsurgency strategy of paying the bad guys rather than killing them. His approach was more political and worked for a while in Iraq but Afghanistan lacks the infrastructure and the Taliban aren´t staying bought.

#14, I gotta agree for the most part. Iraq and Afghanistan are two totally individual cultures and completely diverse groups of people.

Iraq was for decades a very well educated society for the area that wanted self-rule. Saddam Hussein subverted that with stealth then fear and terror. Much like what is happening here in the US.

Afghanistan on the other hand has for centuries been the definition of a nation ruled in tiny enclaves by uneducated, barbaric warlords who ruled as despots to control their territory. They were not unlike the territorial gangs that permeate some of our larger cities here at home. They have not been changed in centuries in spite of numerous invasions, i.e. Russia, and the US. There is little hope of ever "civilizing" Afghanistan. Petraeus gave it the one/two, but was not, like many other invaders, ever able to get in the third punch. As Napoleon once said, I have a lot of good generals. I just need a lucky one.

Yes, do set the affair aside.

He was not such a hot general, since he got co-opted by The Punk and let his operatives (and the SEALs) swing in the wind in Benghazi.

Mostly a shallow little article, some of it may come as news to New Yorker readers but not to anybody who has paid attention.

Filkins does not even consider that we could have succeeded faster and better by killing more enemy, he seems so horrified by the thought he doesn´t even go near it.

FTA: "As Petraeus knows, one of the first principles of counter insurgency policy is that any successful campain must have a credible local partner. The Americans do not have that in Afghanistan and they never have." In the Middle East, other than Israel, we never will. So our intellectual mediocre darlings of moderate politicians and leftist press people, will "unexpectedly" lose. War, especially war with barbarians, is not police work and nation building. It is hell. It tears men limb from limb, only to come home and find they are on a Jannet Napolitano "suspect terrorist list." It also should not be for making a permenant theater to waste our treasure, and turn internationalist, politically corrrect soldiers into future America-lite politicians.

Not one word of praise for our commander in chief, President George W. Bush, who immplemented the surge. Interesting, hey?
And who voted against the surge? Current President Zero, the kenyan klown. And who else voted against the surge? I do believe Jon Cary did.
In my opinion, we have got to stop trying to finesse these wars against the filthy islamofascist terrorist pigs. Especially the barbarians in Afghanistan - if we are going there, we have to kill them. That is war. That is what they understand. And do it in the most effective way possible - carpet bombing.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

Diplomacy downplay: Obama administration

The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”

Why Obama´s ´Best-Looking Attorney

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal
Set Path to Papacy

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

"I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
