      Thanks for posting General Petraeus' briefing on the effects of the Surge. I was one of General Odierno's two Surge planners and it gives me a great deal of satisifaction to see the great work our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and civilians have done to secure the population, transition much of the security efforts to the Iraqis, support an Iraqi political dialogue and reduce Iraq's extremist safe havens. This will be one of the most important enterprises I had the chance to take part in in my life. Thanks again for posting General Petraeus' briefing.

      MY SUPPORT FOR GENERAL PETRAEUS IS SO GREAT. HE MASTERED THE IRAQ WAR WITH THE SURGE. MC CAIN SUPPORTED IT. THAT IS THE PROOF OF ALL. THE AFGHANISTAN SITUATION IS SEPERATE. IRAN IS ANOTHER SITUATION. LETS FACE IT OBAMA HAS ALWAYS MADE THE WRONG DECISION. THIS WAR IS SO VITAL TO GET IT TO END. DO YOU ALL REALIZE THAT SOLDIERS ARE LIVING BECAUSE OF THE SURGE. DO NOT TRY TO PUT MC CAIN DOWN. HE IS A REAL PATRIOT. NOT JUST A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.

      WHEN WILL WE LEARN THAT WE HAVE THE WRONG PERSON AS PRESIDENT…THE FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC REFORM ACT OF 2005 WAS NEVER PASSED BY THE DEMOCRATS. WHAT AM I TELLING YOU ALL. IT IS BLACK AND WHITE..MC CAIN PRESSED THEM TO OVERSEE AND REGULATE IT AND THEY DID NOT. OUR ECONOMY IS AT SO BAD THAT WE NEED A GEN PETRAEUS TO GET IT DONE WITH MC CAIN BY HIS SIDE. CUT GOV. SPENDING. NO MORE PORK. AND KEEP EVERYONE IN THERE HOMES…

      THE END

      Thanks for printing the above – I was'nt quite sure what to think of McCain before.You put my mind at ease.

      Too bad you guys didn't put up a transcript of this for us "Joes".

      The military blocks those of us actually IN Afghanistan from viewing videos or listening to streaming audio…

      …well unless we are an 0-6 or BGen or higher… then its all the bandwidth you want.

      Maybe next time.
