General McChrystal aide calls “wimps in the White House” the “real enemy”
The staff of Four Star General Stanley McChrystal, commander of US Forces in Afghanistan, in a scathing profile in Rolling Stone to hit newsstands Friday call out top officials in the Obama Administration and National Security team as “wimps.”
No drama Obama and his crew have some “message” problems now, but more importantly our troops on the ground have problems from a White House that does not fully support them or their mission. As an observation, isn’t it interesting how Code Pink and other anti-war groups protest a Republican President but are nowhere to be seen with Obama in office. Hmmm.
This is not good news for anyone. For a day or so British Petroleum will be on the back-burner. Tomorrow Gen. McChrystal heads to the White House. This meeting should be a little more intense than last October when Obama gave Gen. McChrystal 25 minutes on Air Force One while in Copenhagen on his failed effort to get Chicago the 2016 Olympics.
Although Gen. McChrystal has apologized. Let’s see what happens tomorrow.
