And on The Subject of Pentagon Announcements
Check this one out:
Lt. Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, U.S. Army, for reappointment to the rank of lieutenant general and assignment as director, Joint Staff, Washington, DC. He is currently serving as commander, Joint Special Operations Command/commander, Joint Special Operations Command Forward, U.S. Special Operations Command, Fort Bragg, N.C..
A lot of people believe McChrystal will be the next Iraq commander after David Petraeus finishes his tour. The horserace — and this is pure gossip here, to be clear — has it between McChrystal and Lt. Gen. Pete Chiarelli, who was corps commander under George Casey.
