Petraeus, commander, U.S. Central Command, prepares to testify before the Senate Armed Services Committee on the situation in Afghanistan on Capitol Hill in Washington on June 16, 2010. The committee gave him a few cookies after the hearing was continued from Tuesday when Gen. Petraeus slumped briefly during testimony, which aides blamed on dehydration and jet lag.
