    General Petraeus To Quit As US Commander In Afghanistan

    not good if true....

    [QUOTE][B]General Petraeus To Quit As US Commander In Afghanistan[/B]

    Shocker form The Times Of London:

    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.[/QUOTE]

    Defense Department spokesman Geoff Morrell released this statement:

    [QUOTE]Despite some sensational speculation by one of the London papers, I can assure you General Petraeus is not quitting as ISAF commander, but nor does he plan to stay in Afghanistan forever. Obviously he will rotate out at some point, but that point has not yet been determined and it will not occur anytime soon. Until then, he will continue to ably lead our coalition forces in Afghanistan.[/QUOTE]
