    Breaking: General Stanley McChrystal tenders his resignation

    Breaking: General Stanley McChrystal tenders his resignation – Telegraph Blogs

    Quote(A senior Capitol Hill source tells me that General Stanley McChrystal had tendered his resignation to President Barack Obama and that the White House is actively discussing a replacement who could be quickly confirmed by the Senate.)

    Now that is the honourable thing to do in such a situation.

    Of course we could always ask the question (What was he thinking in giving Rolling Stone the interview?)

    Interesting comments made at bottom of page.

    This is bull****. McChrystal has not resigned, been fired or been replaced.

    Nothing will probably happen until Wednesday, after Obama leaves his boot prints all over that arrogant ass's fatigues.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    that would be a very stupid thing to do. Obama is in a no-win situation here; either he keeps Gen McCrystal and looks weak (and encourages more infighting among senior members of his administration) or he fires him tactfully (the least worse scenario), in which case he loses a valuable strategic thinker in a tough war. If he fires him maliciously, then he's just taken someone who can lay decent credit to helping win Iraq, and made a permanent enemy of him. A McCrystal campaiging for the Republican Candidate in 2012 would make a powerful critic of Obama's Afghanistan / WOT policy if that effort is not percieved as being successful.

    The Military hasn't used "fatigues" in years. Furthermore, One can not blame McChrystal for resigning, Obama has been an abject failure in managing this war, who would want the job?

    Obama, meet kettle. I hope The People put their boot prints all over Obama's ass in 2012 for his arrogance. BTW, McChrystal must resign to maintain honor.

    He shouldn't resign. He has every right to be pissed at Obama. Obama said he would bring the troops home, and now he's sent more into Afganistan. Why shouldn't free speech apply to military officials?

    because they are in the military. nobody in the military has "free speech", and we are all constrained on what we can say and do. It would be illegal for me, for example, to go out to a Tea Party rally in uniform. the Military is Apolitical, and that is something that we feel is extremely important.
