It's pretty irresponsible for such a high-ranking official to be talking smack about other high-ranking officials to an entertainment magazine. What a terrible [yet guiltily entertaining] profile.

It's a free country. Free speech. I have very little respect for Obama, especially since his real name is Barry Sotero and he went to a church that said they thought God should damn Ameria.I have not read the article, but it's funny when people were slamming Bush left and right, no one had a problem with it, but when something is being said about Obama, suddenly it's wrong. Reminds me of a dictator from the 30's...German/Jewish guy...said he would bring change...

About this topic


In an article written by freelance journalist Michael Hastings, "The Runaway General," appearing in the June 25, 2010 issue of Rolling Stone, General Stanley McChrystal and his staff mock civilian government officials, including Vice President Joe Biden, National Security Advisor James L. Jones, US Ambassador to Afghanistan Karl W. Eikenberry, and Richard Holbrooke.  McChrystal subsequently issued an apology for the article, saying that the Rolling Stone profile "was a mistake reflecting poor judgment." In lieu of attending the president's monthly security team meeting via secure video teleconference, McChrystal has been summoned to the White House to attend in person "where he will have to explain to the Pentagon and the commander in chief his quotes about his colleagues in the article."
