ABC News: Exclusive: Petraeus Wants to Go to Syria; Bush Administration Says No
White House scoffs at Petraeus Syria plan - UPI.comPetraeus proposed visiting Syria shortly after taking over as the top U.S. commander for the Middle East.

But don't be repeating silly nonsense like this. It's really irrelevant, especially during a time of crisis, such as we are facing now.
