The Financial Times is reporting General Patraeus is in talks with the Obama administration to possibly become the next Director of the CIA.
Given Patraeus's asinine statement about the Qur'an being "holy", it seems entirely appropriate for the intellectually deficient General to be called upon to take charge of the agency.
We have been promised our intelligence agencies are going help us win the "War On Terror" and bring the terrorism epidemic to an end. The CIA has been provided nearly unlimited money, technology and other resources, in an effort to see that come to pass.
In what can only be described as a painful example of total ineptness and a complete waste of tax dollars, not only has our most sophisticated intelligence apparatus not helped us defeat the enemy, it has yet to complete the simple task identifying the source of the terrorism problem.
Qur'an (3:151) We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.
Qur'an (7:4-5) How many a township have We destroyed! As a raid by night, or while they slept at noon, Our terror came unto them. No plea had they, when Our terror came unto them, save that they said: Lo! We were wrong-doers.
Qur'an (8:12) [Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."
Qur'an (8:60) And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.
General Patraeus is the perfect candidate to head up the CIA. There can be no doubt he will feel right at home amongst all the belligerency, dysfunction and willful disregard for the facts.
And according to The Hill, Congress is wonderfully happy with the notion of Petraeus being the chief of US intel.

It's official. Sheik Petraeus is headed for the CIA.
President Obama will nominate CIA Director Leon Panetta this week as secretary of defense, replacing Robert M. Gates as part of a series of national security shifts that will also place Afghanistan war commander Gen. David H. Petraeus in the top CIA job, U.S. officials said. [source: washington post]
