Well, according to General Petraeus, we can’t leave because we’re doing too well–of course, before we couldn’t leave because we weren’t doing well enough. There are no meaningful benchmarks for when we CAN leave–actually there are, but if I told you what they were, I’d have to kill you. In the meantime, our wannabe tin soldier has decided to be easy on the troops and ordered that TDYs would only last 12 months instead of 15. HEY DINGLEBERRY! Consecutive 12 month shifts hurts just as bad as consecutive 15 month ones.
