    Listened to BBC's former North America correspondent talking to Gen David Petraeus on Radio 4 this morning.

    I get the impression Petraeus is a Marmite character for the US military - either loved or hated.

    The tabloid headline is 'Petraeus would serve in Trump administration'

    Well, sure. As to how welcome he would be by either the Pentagon or State?

    But Petraeus actually covers some much wider ground than that. Anyway,
    the link is here for those who have an interest
