Petraeus Grilled by Congress

It seemed like a case of “hate the war, but hail the general” as the U.S. military commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, faced criticism and tough questions during his and Ambassador Ryan Crocker’s congressional check-in on Monday about the current status and future direction of the Iraq war.

Remember that B-52 that accidentally took some nukes on a joyride? The whole episode doesn’t make much sense to Larry Johnson, a former employee of the CIA and the State Department’s counterterrorism office, who wonders if it’s more than a coincidence that the plane landed at Barksdale Air Force Base, which a former B-52 pilot friend tells him is “a jumping off point for Middle East operations.”
