According to Pentagon sources familiar with the reports of a meeting apparently Admiral William Fallon who happens to be Petraeus superior doesn't think much of his subordinate Petraeus, during their first meeting in March in Baghdad derided Petraeus as a sycophant and told Petraeus he considered him to be "an ass-kissing little chicken shit" man them is some strong words.

The conflict between Fallon and Petraeus over Iraq came to a head in
early September. According to the Post story, Fallon expressed views on
Iraq that were sharply at odds with those of Petraeus in a three-way
conversation with Bush on Iraq the previous weekend. Petraeus argued
for keeping as many troops in Iraq for as long as possible to cement
any security progress, but Fallon argued that a strategic withdrawal
from Iraq was necessary to have sufficient forces to deal with other
potential threats in the region.
