General Petraeus

General Petraeus

General Petraeus lends himself well to cartoony portrayals. Stay the course? Check. Another ten years of troop presence? Yep. A generous helping of pats on the back? Sure thing.

Between differing reports on who actually wrote his congressional testimony and Petraeus' strong support for Bush's troop surge plan, cartoonists imagined the general as the president's puppet, lap dog, robotic minion and human shield. But Congress didn't escape the cartoon meat-grinder for their part in the less-than-stellar questioning.
