While the president's friends at the Center for American Progress have continued to encourage the administration to sever the Bush-established link between religious zealots' holy war and terrorism, Petraeus (and Gen. James Amos, Obama's pick for Marines commandant) has a very different view.
Under Petraeus' direction, the U.S. military published a field manual for wartime commanders that explicitly linked terrorism and religious extremists. The so-called "Petraeus Doctrine" references “Islamic insurgents,” “Islamic extremists” and “Islamic subversives.”
Perhaps Petraeus, while commanding the war in Afghanistan, is also having some influence in Washington?
