The American Conservative refers to Gen. David Petraeus as a "Sycophant Savior." The article by Andrew J. Bacevich says:
David Petraeus is a political general. Yet in presenting his recent assessment of the Iraq War and in describing the “way forward,” Petraeus demonstrated that he is a political general of the worst kind—one who indulges in the politics of accommodation that is Washington’s bread and butter but has thereby deferred a far more urgent political imperative, namely, bringing our military policies into harmony with our political purposes.

I'm sure that this will be condemned as well. I'm also sure that monkeys will fly out of my butt.
