Joe Klein of Time just told that to CNN. Will President Obama accept his resignation if so?

Update: On Twitter, Joe clarifies through Time Magazine that McChrystal offered to resign. Hasn’t actually tendered his resignation.

Well, McChrystal really f***ked up talking to Rolling Stone saying the things he said. His resignation is “honorable”, considering…..

Anyone else would have been discharged in a heartbeat, if they said the things about their superior(s) the way McChrystal did.

His comments go straight to the heart of the matter, as to how he truly feels about the Commander-in-Chief. He can't wiggle out of that.

He's part of the military-industrial complex, which is why he is dissatisfied about a drawdown next year. Truth is, we need to get out of Afghanistan.

Whether McCrystal resigns, sounds to me like a few members of Team America better be heading stateside pretty soon. And if a new guy comes in, he'll have to bring in an entire new group of his own. If their group dynamics are fueled by a-t-t-i-t-u-d-e vis a vis all the clowns that populate the Rest of the World, the new guy will have festering problems from day 1. They may swear they'll be on their best behavior, but their judgment is demonstrably terrible. And being party to their leader's downfall is unlikely to leave them thoroughly chastened. Just proves how right they were that the Rest of the World are clowns.

I do not believe McChrystal should resign and the president should not accept his resignation. The president needs to fire his ass and take away a star or two while he is at it. The man has disgraced his uniform and the chain of command. He has surrounded himself with homophobic ass kissers that probably should lose some rank themselves. And while he is at it, the Commander in Chief should make sure Lakin gets the full force of the slap down he deserves. Enough is enough.

What's happening with Lakin, anyway? Haven't seen anything on him for a while.

I agree with you, though. Enough IS enough!

if the resignation report is true, Obama should thank the general for his service and give him a hearty hand clasp as he walks him out the door.

Then Obama should say this is a good time to reappraise the AfPak adventure and devise an exit strategy.

I think she's still licking her wounds from the round buttkicking she got in the last election. She'll be back. As long as President Obama is President, she'll be beside herself. It won't be long before we see some illegitimate nonsense coming out of O.C.!
