What to ask Petraeus?

Adam Doster

Once every Friedman Unit, Gen. Petraeus has to answer some questions on the Hill. The last go-round featured plenty of softballs and posturing from our legislators, so David Corn asked some national security experts what they'd like to ask the General if given the chance. It's worth a full read, but I particularly like Juan Cole's sole question. General Petraeus, you have done what you can do militarily. It’s unclear that more can be done on that front, and yet there is still a fair amount of violence. The question is, what now? This is not facetious.
