The ambassador and his men were left hanging out to dry, lest ‘the narrative’ (”Obama’s Dead, GM’s alive”) be contradicted. Petraeus thought that the same people who made that decision would somehow not do it to him. The moment that Ohio went for Obama—the moment when Petraeus’ obeisance was no longer important—was the moment that he, too, was left hanging out to dry. The only surprise was that Petraeus was surprised.
Oops. Make that narrative “Osama’s dead, GM’s alive.”
