David H. Petraeus

General David Petraeus, a retired four-star general, was the Commanding General of the Multi-National Force-Iraq. He served in this capacity from February 2007 to September 2008. He was also the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from September 2011 to November 2012.

General Petraeus is a scholar as well. He earned his PhD from Princeton University in International Relations and has held a number of academic appointments in leading universities.

But General Petraeus says that one strike does not a strategy make.
