“Conversations with Bill Kristol”, a production of the Foundation for Constitutional Government, announces the release of a conversation with General David Petraeus.
In this conversation, Gen. Petraeus recalls his command in Iraq (2007-2008) and the “surge” he led that turned around the war. Gen. Petraeus recounts what it was like to run the war—from day-to-day operations and navigating Iraqi politics to weekly videoconferences with President Bush and testifying before Congress. Gen. Petraeus also explains the “surge of ideas,” the conceptual groundwork for the strategy he then executed.
