McChrystal: Mission Accomplished?

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010


Am I the only one who’s considered the possibility that General Stanley McChrystal WANTED to be relieved of his Afghanistan command – and found a quick way to do it?

Here’s what I’m thinking:  the war is a disaster and not getting any better.  To win even a partial victory, McChrystal needs many more troops which he’s not going to get.  As time marches closer to Obama’s deadline and the 2012 elections, there’s just not a victory in sight. And General McChrystal doesn’t want his 30-years of service to be stained with this debacle as General Westmoreland is forever linked to our loss in Vietnam.

So what could General McChrystal do?  Quit?  No way. What reason could he give that would not encourage the enemy?  Change direction?  NOW?! Uh-uh.  Continue to let our people be killed in a hopeless, unwinnable quagmire? Not on his watch.  So what could he do?  Maybe General McChrystal just did what he had to do – to personally pull out of Afghanistan.

The alternative is to believe that this brilliant, military tactician, with 30-years of experience keeping his mouth shut, started to carelessly babble (for weeks!) around a reporter from a left-wing, entertainment magazine. Right.
