Senate confirms Gen. Petraeus to lead Afghan war

 

The U.S. Senate voted on Wednesday to confirm David Petraeus as the new commander of the troubled occupation in Afghanistan.

President Barack Obama tapped Petraeus after last week firing the previous commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal, for disparaging civilian leaders in an explosive magazine article.
