Commander of Iraq, Afghan wars: I need thinkers

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- The four-star Army general who oversees U.S. forces in both the Iraq and Afghan wars told cadets at South Carolina's military college Thursday that he needs warriors who can do more than kill and capture the enemy.  Gen. David Petraeus, head of the U.S. Central Command, told 2,100 cadets at The Citadel that their studies will have to go beyond how to prosecute war or call in air strikes.
