    The salary of the Director of the CIA is $180,000. In 2013 Petraeus will earn more than $1 million.

      My opinion is that he should be charged with killing civilians and brought to trial, preferably at The Hague.

      Of course, you are correct. He will be richly rewarded instead.

        over any US citizen including the entire Bush cabal or any member of our armed forces. Because we are not members of the ICC for all practical purposes no American can be brought to trial at the Hague. While some would argue there is a path, it would take one of our closest NATO allies spending an inordinate amount of political capital and fracturing their relationship with the US, to actually make it happen.

          I am arguing for what should happen not what will likely happen in the short term. US courts do not deal fairly with international people whose family members have been murdered by the US government. US administrations of both parties see civilian deaths in US many wars of choice as "collateral damage."

          With Petraeus's enthusiastic support, Obama has doubled down on what was a much smaller drone enterprise under Bush.
