The U.S. commander in charge of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, passed out briefly on Tuesday at a Senate hearing, after facing tough questions on the Afghan mission.

The four-star general tried to reassure senators about the course of the war before he suddenly slumped over at the table, his aides rushing to his side as stunned lawmakers looked on.

Petraeus "appears to be doing very well," said Senator Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, minutes after the dramatic episode.

Stress!

They say it was due to dehydration. Today he showed up with a canister of water.

and he never ate breakfast. Can't be good to skip such an important meal when your 50+ and under a lot of stress.
