KKR Lands General PEUtraeus

General David Petraeus became a private equity underwriter (PEU) with KKR. WaPo reported PEUtraeus will head up the firm's division concerned with "macroeconomic and geopolitical forces that could influence KKR’s investment decisions.  Those forces are the Government-Corporate Monstrosity, General Dwight D. Eisenhower's Military-Industrial Complex on trillions in federal steroids.  PEUtraeus serves what Eisenhower grew to disdain. 

From book deal to DealBook, how PEUtraeus' fortunes turned.  Might it be time to reintroduce the General at the Bilderberg 2013 meeting, a regular event for a number of KKR leaders?
