Petraeus plays SecDef in new Call of Duty


I played a few missions in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 after the game was released today, but I haven't yet met David Petraeus. The former army general and CIA director turns up in the game as the U.S. Secretary of Defense greeting troops aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Barack Obama in the year 2025.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow showed the game's Petraeus scene on her show tonight and a story posted on CNet includes a statement from and other sources from Activision Blizzard, the game's developers, that saysthe former general is in the game just because the designers thought it would be cool: "General Petraeus was not paid, was not involved in the creation of the game, and has not been asked to endorse the game."

CNet also posted a video of his cameo appearance.
