davidpetraeus3 General:  Quran Burning Could Endanger Troops (Audio)The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan says that the plan by a church in Florida to burn the Islamic holy book on September 11th could be used by the Taliban as a propaganda tool.

Gen. David Petraeus told the Wall Street Journal that “It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort.  It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems. Not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community.”

I spoke with 2 Star Army General, Ret., Bill McClain.  Listen and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
