General McChrystal's Comments

This will be brief. Within the chain of military command it is difficult to find those who will speak openly about their superiors. While he is entitled to his opinions, General McChrystal's comments about the Obama administration were callous and disrespectful. Obama isn't one to fire someone critical of him, however. Remember back in the day when Bush fired all the military leaders who told him the truth about the invasion of Iraq? That won't happen again. But what concerns me is the blatant disrespect McChrystal showed for his Commander-In-Chief. Obama has an opportunity to show real political courage by forgiving McChrystal and focusing on his experience and military expertise, and I believe he will.

Anyway, that's my brief opinion on this issue. Frankly, I think it's being blown way out of proportion, but hey, at least we forgot about the oil spill for a good 10 minutes.
