The Afghan government was incrediably corrupt. Moreover, many Afghan military units couldn't or wouldn't fight.

And what is asked for the service we give? No high praise or riches if we should live. Just silence from friends, our name on a wall. If this time around, it is I that fall.

America's involvement in Afghanistan since the fall of 2001 had been a colossal missed opportunity.

THE biography by the mistress and co-conspirator and actor in treason that led to Petraeus's public (though not priv) downfall! (Where are her criminal charges???).

Yet Petraeus, while personally intelligent, in fact was not militarily brilliant nor particularly savvy... though he indeed was one of the Perfumed Princes who believes absolutely in the Three Ps: Power, Perks, and Privileges!

EVERYTHING that Petraeus did in his military and post military life has had one and only one agenda - to do what is right for Petraeus and his personal benefit. Entitlement is an expectation of his (which he got even in "the end"... a deal that converts multiple severe felonies demanding decades of imprisonment down to one misdemeanor that carries no jail time and allows him to maintain his oligarchic and highly wealthy post treasonous career!).

So much for his oft repeated claims of innocence. And this is the deal if the century. He should have been prosecuted for every count and once convicted, sentenced to life without parole in Leavenworth!
