I think General McChrystal has a unique vantage point. He may have apologized. But I think he might be right in his assessments.
You tell me.
McChrystal wouldn't be the first Field Commander to have been handcuffed and silenced by politicos. It's a grand tradition that goes back a long long long way in America. But, I now fear our arrogant and condescending President and his cadre will elevate it to a new PC art form.
I'm sure McChrystal will soon be replaced. Who'll get the nod, General McDonalds or General White-Castle?
A search may already be under way. Perhaps Barack The Magnificent can plow new ground here by sidestepping the traditional military pool entirely and appointing Commisar Andy Stern of the SIEU to the post. Then he could stop fighting with those pesky Afghans and Al Quaida murders and organize them into the International Brotherhood of Prostitutes and Poppy Pickers.
I'll bet Rahm Emmanuel is already on it!
