I was talking with the Editor of the Blaze Glenn Hall while I was in NYC, and he asked me what I thought about the situation with General Petraeus. He puts on his pants everyday just like the rest of us, and is only human.  

I offered to write up an Op Ed for the Blaze.  Here goes…

General David Petraeus is an American patriot and hero. America has lost a great leader, we now have a huge leadership gap to fill and a lot is sure to fall on Admiral William McRaven, the Commander of U.S. Special Operations.

It takes guts to realize you screwed up and to then come clean without any excuses. How refreshing it was to see, regardless of the circumstances. Too often it’s the Washington way to hide, point fingers, and try to place blame on someone else. Very rarely does someone stand up and take it head on, and I personally applaud the general for doing this.  It’s what good leaders do.
