I have more real combat experience than any war correspondent you ever met. Officers like McChrystal do not impress me. I was happy to see my advice heeded when McChrystal when President Obama fired. Stanley McChrystal.
Taliban was monkey-stomping McChrystal. Troop morale was plummeting under McChrystal.
McChrystal could not even beat Burger King. McChrystal tried to get Burger King removed from Afghanistan bases and failed even at that.
McChrystal also attacked me. And failed.
McChrystal is as authoritarian as he is sycophantic. He’s also amazingly thin-skinned and will turn on anyone.
Great job by President Obama for firing McChrystal — well, that was after McChrystal turned on Obama and Biden. Now, McChrystal is back in sycophant mode sucking up to President-elect Biden. There is nobody McChrystal will not turn on. He turned against Obama, Biden, and now against America. Anyone in power can own this guy.
