It’ll be another few days before the Senate formally votes to confirm General David Petraeus as the new top commander of the Afghanistan war. But it looks like he’s sparing no time assembling his posse. Danger Room has learned that Brigadier General H.R. McMaster is headed to Afghanistan to become Petraeus’ new “Deputy J5,” a top officer in charge of plans.I'd like to work for that guy.
Petraeus is all in - as you would expect. He's got a year. Everyone get out of his way.
