Firing McChrystal was the right thing to do

I don’t often agree with President Obama, but General Stan McChrystal, a great general, blew it and is suffering the logical consequences of his actions. Granted that there is no apparent evidence that he ever spoke negatively about his superiors, but he absolutely allowed an attitude to exist among his staff and subordinates that most of them were incompetent clowns. The reporter clearly picked up on this unprofessional atmosphere or culture. We’re not talking, here, about the occasional negative comment–this was the atmosphere of the headquarters–and it’s the boss’s responsibility. Sorry, General McChrystal, you’re a great man and we’ll miss you.

Hummm. I wonder if a McChrystal for President committee has formed anywhere.
