LTG David Petraeus for President!

Lieutenant General David H. Petraeus, former commander of the 101st Airborne Division and now commander of the Multinational Security Transition Command in Iraq (and perhaps the smartest and most competent commander we have over there, not to mention a person who I am a pretty big fan of) has a very good editorial in Sunday's Washington Post. One interesting tidbit in it caught my eye:

In the months ahead, the 16,000-strong border force will expand to 24,000 and then 32,000. In addition, these forces will be provided with modern technology, including vehicle X-ray machines, explosive-detection devices and ground sensors.

Once you're done over there, General, why don't you come over here and secure our border?

Note: Most of the links on this post, except for the actual article that Petraeus wrote, were written or posted when he was still a Major General. He has since been promoted.
