Earlier today, I had the chance to ask Gen. David Petraeus to respond to the recent debate over his position on how the Israeli-Palestinian conflict affects the broader U.S. objectives in the region. A number of blog and media reports have suggested that Petraeus is increasingly concerned that failure to resolve the conflict, and the perception in the Arab world that the U.S. is too reflexively pro-Israel, is significantly jeopardizing U.S. objectives in the region — and even putting American troops in greater danger. I plan to write more on this, but first I wanted to post the video of my full exchange with Petraeus, which occurred during a press conference prior to his Wednesday appearance at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire. If you aren’t familiar with the story, here’s the post on Foreign Policy’s website that started the controversy, which Petraeus told me was wrong in all the key respects. And here’s the Max Boot post from Commentary that Petraeus told me accurately reflects his position.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
