General McChrystal has outmaneuvered and outsmarted Barack Obama. According to the UK Telegraph:
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.
Honestly, a General can only tolerate so much incompetence from the Commander in chief. Obama has botched the Afghanistan war from day one.
McChrystal needed 60,000 additional troops to finish the war and get out. Obama took months to decide and has agreed to half. And what they are calling a surge is actually a slow trickle.
Another Obama strategy designed and destined to fail.
