David Howell Petraeus is a retired United States Army general and public official. He was hired by Henry Kravis in December 2014 to head his own intelligence agency called the KKR Global Institute[1]

Career

Petraeus worked as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from September 6, 2011, until his resignation on November 9, 2012.

Michael Hastings opined that:

David Petraeus is... a world-class bullshit artist... He essentially armed and trained what later became known as ‘Iraqi death squads.’ He... took the Shiites’ side in a civil war, armed them to the teeth, and suckered the Sunnis into thinking we’d help them out too... Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis lost their lives during a sectarian conflict that Petraeus’ policies fueled... The reputations of the men who were intimately involved in these years of foreign misadventure, where we tortured and supported torture, armed death squads, conducted nightly assassinations, killed innocents, and enabled corruption on an unbelievable scale, lie in tatters.” [2]

Operation Timber Sycamore

Bulgarian newspaper Trud reported in 2017 that Silk Way Airlines were used to funnel weapons into the Syria conflict via Azerbaijan.[3] The Bulgarian journalist who reported on the story was subsequently fired for exposing the arms shipments[4]

Thierry Meyssan reported in December 2018 that Petraeus pursued Operation Timber Sycamore using funding from KKR investments and Henry Kravis private funds. Operation Timber Sycamore was the largest weapons trafficking scandal in history, implicating at least 17 governments and representing many thousands of tons of weapons worth several billion dollars. As such, Kravis and Petraeus became the main suppliers for ISIS/Daesh [5]
