Karzai Likes Him? Oh, Well Then…


Word is that Afghani President Hamid Karzai likes Gen. McChrystal and thinks he’s doing a great job. This is the West Asian equivalent of “Heckuva job, Brownie,” and reason enough to wonder about the guy. His ability to keep his mouth shut when he’s drinking is yet another.

It’s a shame to see a career end on a sour note, but McChrystal will walk away from his job with well into six figures of retirement pay, and no doubt a fat defense industry job waiting in the wings. He won’t be hurting all that much.

BTW: It was sort of hard to find the Rolling Stone article for a while. It’s posted on their site now, if anyone still cares.

Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
