Petraeus to Be Nominated to Lead Central Command


www.nytimes.com

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Army Gen. David Petraeus, the four-star general who led troops in Iraq for the past year, will be nominated by President Bush to be the next commander of U.S. Central Command, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Wednesday.

Gates said he expected Petraeus to make the shift in late summer or early fall. The Pentagon chief also announced that Bush will nominate Army Lt. Gen. Ray Odierno to replace Petraeus in Baghdad.

Central Command oversees the wars in Iraq and in Afghanistan.

Well this is interesting. I wonder why especially since Petraeus is seen by some as the savior of the war in Iraq.
