Petraeus 2012? (VIDEO)

Is General Petraeus running for President in 2012?

Rumors have been flying about the esteemed General running for the White House, after a report surfaced that he was making a commencement address at the University of Iowa in 2010.

But representatives of the General say these rumors are purely fiction.

A statement from CENTCOM said: "Contrary to several recent blogs, General David Petraeus, the Commander of the US Central Command, has not been asked to speak at a university commencement in Iowa in 2010 and has no plans to do so. It us unclear where this rumor started, but it is not accurate".
