Gen. Petraeus: Afghan victory not a ‘sure thing’

The commanding general of the war in Afghanistan says US victory in the region may not be a "sure thing" after all.

"I don't think there are any sure things in this kind of endeavor," Gen. David Petraeus told ABC's George Stephanopoulos in an interview published Monday morning. "And I wouldn't be honest with you and with the viewers if I didn't convey that."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if General Petraeus isn't setting the American public up for a "Saigon Moment" in Kabul in not too distant future, even though it appears that the US and NATO have agreed to stay in Afghanistan permanently.
