The fall of David H. Petraeus as the nation's spy chief does not erase his long record as a military commander who turned the tide of the war in Iraq and set up new tactics for killing Islamic terrorists, his friends and military observers say.
"I think Sen. Hagel is an excellent choice to head the Department of Defense," said retired Army Col. Peter Mansoor, a key command adviser in Iraq during the 2007 troop surge. "He is well-versed in Washington politics, and having seen the sharp end of combat in Vietnam gives him a unique perspective on policies that could very well put America's young men and women into harm's way."
