McChrystal in Rolling Stone

I just read the Rolling Stone article about McChrystal.  I think it’s a brilliant move on McChrystal’s part.  There’s no way he can achieve a real victory in Afghanistan. Why not play the tough guy, get himself fired, and when things fall apart strut about claiming that had he been allowed to run things victory will be assured.

    Obama’s mistake was in not firing McChrystal last autumn
    after his speech in London in which he went outside the chain of command to tell the world he wanted 40,000 more troops in Afghanistan.
    having given the president his advice, he should have kept his mouth shut, resigned when he didn’t get what he wanted,
    or accepted the job and done it to the best of his ability,and not been sniping from the rear.
