McChrystal out, Petraeus in

In an attempt to look like a strong tough President Obama fires (really accepted his resignation)  General McChrystal.  Obama’s PR team was obviously on board by having McChrystal come to the White House to divert attention from failures in the Gulf of Mexico.

Obama said he accepted Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal’s resignation and, in an equally stunning move, said he had appointed Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, who once led U.S. forces in Iraq, as his successor.

“War is bigger than any one man or woman, whether a private, a general or a president,” Obama said. “As difficult as it is to lose Gen. McChrystal, I believe it is the right decision for our national security.”
