    Is it possible Patreaus redeemed himself in Obama's eyes?

    What changed besides his being elected? honestly I think its typical dirty pool politics. Obama ain't the only one.

    At what point in the video does he call Patreaus a failure?

    I agree that Obama is a politician.

    I think it's infered when he talks about the war being a failure no?

    So he didn't call him a failure. That's just your spin on it.

    Quite possibly. Or I was playing with my new iphone and only been half payin attention to my posting...



    Obama called the war a failure and rudlley drilled patreaus, I believe it was hillary who called him a liar, the contempt for patreus back during the bush admin by these usual suspects seems to have simply vanished....


    it's shameful to be that much of a two sided mouth speaker. And no Obama is not the only one.

    Possibly. Perhaps also McChrystal is seen as loose tongued - some non-US articles say the Rolling Stone Article is not the first such incident and he's also supposed to have leaked secret CIA information at a London speech.

    Maybe despite any wrongs and faults Obama may have - this is a man out of control?

    This is not the first time McChrystal has stepped out of line. He was seen as using a speech where he spoke of "chaosistan" to box the president in, and force him to send more troops to Afghanistan.

    He was given a presidential telling-off in Air Force One in Copenhagen.

    I was simply responding to your comment about Obama's immaturity. The 1 hour stop over you later referred to near Germany is seen in other quarters as the first time Obama had to dress McChrystal down - the BBC reporter said in his Blog and on BBC news just now that it was a "Presidential telling off near Copenhagen"

    For further clarification - Obama spoke face to face with McChrystal on both occasions and I'm simply saying what I mean - I'd personally prefer someone told me face to face rather than sack me from halfway across the world.

    Well... there's a Rolling Stone article that seems to have gotten him in trouble.

    I'm guessing if he didn't say anything at all about the Vice President or Jack Jones or any others of the US Govt - then he could comfortably sue the Rolling Stone for false reporting / libel and live in comfort for the rest of his life. Anyhow - McChrystal didn't specifically refer to Obama but his position as head to the aides that actually did reminds me of the old "buck stops here" comment.

    Finally, for clarification - I referenced "a senior British Officer" in my post if it's important for you to prove that I did or didn't accuse McChrystal himself of saying anything specific about the President.
