Obama Demotes Petraeus from CENTCOM Commander to Theater of Operations Commander

In replacing General Stanley McChrystal with General David Petraeus, Obama has handed Petraeus a demotion from CENTCOM commander to Theater of Operations commander. What's up with that?

The Right Scoop has posted this interview with Allen West, who offers the first analysis of the McChrystal situation that makes sense to me.

Give it a listen.



  1. Lt. Colonel Allen West is spot on!

  2. There's nothing like a strong leader who respects the Constitution, has common sense, and has studied history.

  3. thank u !..will add you to my blogroll asap and keep up your Courage!:)

  4. The supposed demotion is common. Many times an admiral will be demoted from 4 stars to two or three because that is what the position calls for.

  5. Trestin - Thanks for the explanation.

    I wonder who will replace Petraeus, or whether he will be doing both jobs now.
