Petraeus at CIA?

There has been much speculation that General David Petraeus, who is currently occupied with defeating our evil enemies in Afghanistan, might become the next Director of the Central Intelligence Agency if Leon Panetta is selected to replace Defense Secretary Robert Gates. Secretary Gates is retiring this summer.

Democratic, Independent and Republican Senators have come out in support of the General, even though the speculation is weak, and quite improbable.

Hopefully, the speculation is incorrect.

America's greatest living General does not belong in Washington's Intelligence scene, but in a position of Military stature such as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, or Supreme Allied Commander of NATO. Personally, I am supportive of the NATO route, because it will reinforce the image of another Ike in 2016.

However, I will support General Petraeus for any position he is nominated to, because America is absolutely lucky to have such a genuine patriot serving his country in any capacity that is requested of him, regardless of who the man in charge is.

What say you?
