Petraeus to officially retire to take CIA job

U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, who served as the top U.S. commander in Iraq and then Afghanistan, will hang up his uniform for a civilian suit. He will leave the Pentagon for the halls of another hallowed Washington institution: the CIA, according to CNN. Petraeus’ experience in working with the CIA on counterinsurgency efforts in the field was cited as a reason for his nomination as its director. He assumes his new role on September 6.
