Senate Unanimously Confirms Petraeus As Afghanistan Commander
Just a week after he was named to replace General Stanley McChrystal, the Senate has unanimously confirmed David Petraeus as the new commander of American forces in Afghanistan:
General David Petraeus, the president’s pick to take over from Gen. Stanley McChrystal as the new commander of the troubled war in Afghanistan, was approved by the Senate Wednesday.
Obama tapped Petraeus to lead U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan after firing McChrystal for disparaging civilian leaders in an explosive magazine article.
The vote was unanimous, with senators backing his appointment 99 to 0.
Good luck General. And stay away from those Rolling Stone reporters.
