McCHRYSTAL FIRED! OBAMA DUMPS ANOTHER
Gen. Stanley McChrystal has been fired. The top general in Afghanistan who embarrassed and angered his boss in the White House one time too many was told in a face-to-face meeting that he has been replaced.
CANDIDATE OBAMA HAD BEEN CRITICAL OF BUSH'S GENERAL IN IRAQ
It must have been ironic for Petraeus to be offered the top job, since two years ago, Obama was highly critical of then President George Bush and the "troop surge" in Iraq. It was Gen. Petraeus who is primarily responsible for the much-improved military situation there. An intensely-driven and ambitious man, the much-decorated officer is perhaps the only general who can turn things around for the U.S. in Afghanistan.
McCHRYSTAL NO MacARTHUR, AND OBAMA CAN'T COME CLOSE TO
Those who would try and compare this case with that of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, called home and canned by President Harry Truman at the height of the Korean War, are wrong. McChrystal could never measure up to MacArthur, and Truman was one of our greatest presidents. No danger that Obama will ever eclipse him in the history books.
