Gen. John Allen Takes Over in Afghanistan


Having made the occupation of Afghanistan his centerpiece war, President Obama has repeatedly juggled the leadership of the conflict, and Gen. John Allen (Marines) has taken over today as the fourth commander of Obama’s two and a half years in office.

Allen follows in a trail of disastrous commanders that has included Gen. David McKiernan, who was constantly blaming the media for the worsening situation, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who managed to reduce civilian casualties but also oversaw enormous escalations of the war and a littany of failures leading to his being fired after a media interview.
