As Glen Reynolds says:

McChrystal's greatest crime was speaking the truth -- that the White House is unserious about this war, and that its foreign policy team isn't up to the job. And if he were saying this about a Republican administration, the press would be hailing him as a great hero, speaking truth to power.

Nonetheless, serving generals aren't supposed to speak this way about their civilian masters, and so if the Rolling Stone reports are true, he should probably be sacked.

But once that's over, we need to look seriously at the Administration's neglect of the war in Afghanistan. (and in Iraq for that matter.)
