NUMBER OF TIME COVERS: 0
PREVIOUS APPEARANCES ON THE TIME 100: 0
PRO: Princeton-educated scholar-soldier who won accolades for his stabilization of Mosul after the Iraq invasion (where his troops killed Saddam's two sons). He was given the unenviable task of retraining Iraq's security forces; now he must figure out how to end a civil war.
CON: While he may be able to command his soldiers, the question remains if anyone can bridge the deep divides among Iraqi people.
