A Great Leader Departs Iraq
General David Petraeus relinquishes his command of Iraq today. During his 20 months in charge, through intelligent and aggressive strategic planning, Petraeus has done much to turn the situation around in Iraq. He is a great American and deserves an enormous amount of credit for bringing the qualities to our mission in Iraq that were so absent during the initial invasion and chaotic aftermath. Less of the sacrifice the United States has made in Iraq has been in vain as a result of Petraeus' remarkable leadership.
