I liked the video. Thanks for the catalog description of the course, SemperExcelsius. I think the video is entirely appropriate for this course...the student showed a stark contrast between two realities: Iraq and Washington. A contrast that she will be faced with her entire career as an American who serves in the miltary. She explored the use of a powerful media outlet (youtube) and expressed an opinion in order to elicit comment. Your opinions of her video are probably helpful for her to assess the impact of her video.
I personally am very glad to see this type of course at West Point. The criminals in Iraq have mastered the use of all media outlets. The impact of media outlets on civilian/military perceptions is something even our platoon leaders need to understand and utilize.
And Commissioner, I think the catchy title, "General Petraeus Gets Demoted", is all she needs to increase the number of youtube hits...her gender is irrevalent.
