Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the House speaker, waded into the media-manufactured controversy Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s London speech on “Charlie Rose” last night, according to Greg Sargent, who’s got the transcript:

“Let me say this about about General McChrystal, with all due respect,” Pelosi said, according to a transcript sent my way by a Pelosi aide. “His recommendations to the president should go up the line of command. They shouldn’t be in press conferences.”

I’m guessing she meant London speeches, but whatever. For the record, the general’s people told me he agrees; he’s got no more public appearances planned; the message is received; and the secretaries of state and defense both said last night that they support McChrystal.
