Generals and Politics
You can tell that civil-military relations are getting complicated
when a general, appointed by this President to carry out his new strategy, is being criticized for speaking in favor of the strategy. In the meantime, McChrystal's superior, General Petraeus--one who had an especially close relation to Bush--is said to be (maybe) interested in running for president. I am betting that this
isn't coming from his supporters. Expect a major shakeup, justified by a brand new strategy for Afghanistan/Pakistan/al Qaeda.
