***  President Obama will have a special meeting with General McChrystal.

Washington Post:

The top U.S. general in Afghanistan was summoned to Washington for a White House meeting after apologizing Tuesday for flippant and dismissive remarks about top Obama administration officials involved in Afghanistan policy.

The remarks in an article in this week's in Rolling Stone magazine are certain to increase tension between the White House and Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal.

The profile of McChrystal, , titled the "Runaway General," also raises fresh questions about the judgment and leadership style of the commander Obama appointed last year in an effort to turn around a worsening conflict....

I don't recall exactly how many top brass resigned/fired/retired under the last Bush  administration.  McChrystal might not like the questions and inquiries into the wars' progress and costs. We are spending billions and billions of dollars and have lost American lives. McChrystal should be willing to answer all questions and provide honest answers. Are McChrystal's politics getting in the way of his duties?  Is McChrystal being insubordinate?
