I would refer you to the Foreign Policy website to read the whole report on this link: http://mideast.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2010/03/14/the_petraeus_briefing_biden_s_embarrassment_is_not_the_whole_story I also stress the following request by Gen. Petraeus: "....Petraeus sent a paper to the White House requesting that the West Bank and Gaza (which, with Israel, is a part of the European Command -- or EUCOM), be made a part of his area of operations. Petraeus's reason was straightforward: with U.S. troops deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. military had to be perceived by Arab leaders as engaged in the region's most troublesome conflict ..." This means the US military want the Occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip under its direct command and not the Israeli Army's control. Meaning: 1: Total withdrawal of Israel from WB&G 2: stationing US troops in West Bank. Dayton is already there training the Palestinian security forces. Do you get the message?????
