KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The new U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan is calling for unity between the civilian and military effort in the nearly 9-year-old war.
Gen. David Petraeus told a crowd of about 1,700 Afghan, American and international guests at the U.S. Embassy Saturday that cooperation between the military and civilian effort "is not optional."
It was Petraeus' first public comment since arriving Friday night to assume command. His predecessor Gen. Stanley McChrystal was fired for intemperate remarks by him and his aides about Obama administration figures to Rolling Stone magazine.
Dear AP asshats. General McChrystal RESIGNED way before he reached the dumb ass D'ohBama. Morons.
