Drum on Petraeus on the Surge

    I find it interesting that these pundits know a couple months in advance that the General knew a couple months in advance what the report was going to say. I think it would be funny if Petraeus would say the war was lost, we should get out immediately if not sooner, then a couple days later say just kidding, everything is really going well. For those two days he would be the most honest and brilliant man alive.
