General Petraeus Has Undergone Treatment For Cancer
General David Petraeus, who along with President George W. Bush and the US military, brought Victory to Iraq, has undergone treatment for cancer.
Petraeus brought victory to Iraq despite protests from democrats who repeatedly voted to surrender, and from Barack Obama, who supported genocide in Iraq.

The AP reported:
Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, has undergone treatment for prostate cancer.
A spokesman for Petraeus says the general was diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer in February. Petraeus underwent two months of radiation treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, and the treatment was successful.
The spokesman, Col. Erik Gunhus, says the treatment had little effect on Petraeus’ job because he was in Washington for policy reviews and other Pentagon matters. Petraeus did make at least one overseas trip during his treatment.
