I thought it would have been a great thing for someone to ask about, while Petraeus was up in front of a congressional committee this week. But a set of well-framed questions would have interfered with the speechifying, so never mind.

I wonder whether he reviewed his dissertation either before his current deployment to Iraq, or before he wrote his testimony -- in short, I wonder how closely he keeps his 20-year-old thoughts close.
I wonder whether he'd change any of his conclusions in his dissertation, today.
Thanks for the post, especially for the link to the disseration.
