Yes. Obama did make a politically astute move .......... Afghanistan is a loser; always was. But now, Obama has placed Bush's top General in the spotlight; when everything falls apart, the blame will sit squarely on Petraeus's shoulders .......... the "surge" strategy belongs to Petraeus. And, as Iraq disintegrates, Petraeus will also be blamed for that mess, even though Bush did it. Both Dems and Repubs will dump on the General; no wonder he is stressed to the point of fainting under questioning by a supposedly friendly Repub.
