Andrew Sullivan on the New Surge, and the New Defense Secretary:
“… the new defense secretary is not a flaming asshole, which makes a change from the last six years …”
In fact he’s apparently a competent guy. I know, I know … We’re not at all used to that kind of thing …
His Article goes on to site General Petraeus, a Phd from Princeton, as a real driving force behind whatever is good. Petraeus’ counter insurgency in Mosul has proven to really be working. But, unfortuanately for us, neither the Defense Secretary nor General Petraeus are the President. I’m not even sure the President is the President.
