The cashiered commander of the Afghanistan war just emailed this to reporters:

This morning the President accepted my resignation as Commander of U.S. and NATO Coalition Forces in Afghanistan. I strongly support the President’s strategy in Afghanistan and am deeply committed to our coalition forces, our partner nations, and the Afghan people. It was out of respect for this commitment — and a desire to see the mission succeed — that I tendered my resignation.

It has been my privilege and honor to lead our nation’s finest.

Why follow Ackerman when he wants to spin the story. McChrystal submitted his resignation, Obama accepted it. End of story, accept that nowhere in the Stone's article is McChrystal quoted saying something derogatory about Obama. So, just why all this hoopla?

Because the General has a reporter allowed a reporter to shadow him without concern for even the little, simplest things like don't permit reporters to record conversations where every other word is a profanity. The General clearly had a death wish. Obama had to oblige him.
