Obama meets with Petraeus

Obama met Wednesday with Gen. David Petraeus, his commander in Afghanistan and the author of the counterinsurgency strategy first employed in Iraq. The meeting with Petraeus and other members of Obama’s national security team, unlike many on Afghanistan, was not on the official schedule.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the secret meeting shouldn’t raise eyebrows. Not all the president’s meetings are listed on the schedule, he said.
