McChrystal removed from command, talk of Petraeus replacing him. Which is funny, considering Petraeus’ past…

ABC reports that General McChrystal has been relieved of his command, and that among the possible successors is General Petraeus. You’ll remember Petraeus as one of the Iraq war’s biggest defenders. Which is interesting, since the Senate Democrats just a few years ago produced a lengthy analysis of how flawed Petraeus’ Iraq testimony really was.
