Tigerhawk Covers Lt. Gen. Petraeus
Don't miss it if you have the slightest interest on how the Iraqis are doing in building a new police force and military:
The advertised topic of General Petraeus' talk -- which was not covered by the mainstream media -- was "A Soldier's Reflections on Iraq," but it turned out to be a quite specific briefing on the present condition of Iraq's military and special police, which General Petraeus had been charged with organizing and training through the completion of his tour. The Newsweek article that ran at the beginning of his assignment in June 2004 is here, and gives some sense for the scope of the mission at the time.
