Petraeus to the Rescue

Hosted by

After President Obama read the first few paragraphs of Rolling Stone magazine's profile of General Stanley McChrystal, it was less than 48 hours before David Petraeus accepted command of US troops in Afghanistan. The President says he wasn't personally offended, but he told his War Council that the military code of conduct "applies equally to newly enlisted privates and to the general officer who commands them."
