Petraeus Cancels Albuquerque Speech

This in from the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce:

The Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce was notified today that General David Petraeus has cancelled his speech at the Chamber's Annual Meeting scheduled for July 21, 2010. "We are disappointed but completely understand that General Petraeus must leave for Afghanistan immediately following his confirmation,” said Terri Cole, President and CEO of the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce. “We will begin immediately to find an equally exciting and dynamic speaker for our annual meeting."

An equally dynamic speaker? I understand General McChrystal isn't doing anything.
