Gen. McChrystal

This makes me mad. Anyone that watched Gen. McChrystal's coverage on 60 minutes a couple weeks back couldn't help but be impressed, but because he's not holding the party line he may be sacked. This is a man that is actually figuring things out in a place where nothing makes sense. He has captured or killed dozens of high level Taliban and Al Queda fighters. He has the respect of his men. But he stepped on Obama's toes...a President that had to have a meeting with the General on the tarmac of an airport after lobbying for a Chicago Olympics.

This is a damn shame.

  1. Like others who started out as public servants, Obama is allowing the old guard to pull him into the fold where politics is king, secrecy dominates, and the public pays the price.
