Petraeus to Head CIA

President Obama plans to name CIA Director Leon Panetta as the next secretary of defense and name Gen. David Petraeus to head the CIA, NYT is reporting.

Is this a move to eliminate Petraeus as a potential presidential candidate?

  1. Panetta is an experienced political operative and smart guy who can manage the conflicting demands on the Defense Dept. at a time of multiple wars and pressures for budget reductions. Most important, he is a long-time and solid friend of EY and has close ties to many Israeli leaders and generals.
