Gen. Stanley McChrystal has been summoned to the White House by a reportedly “furious” President Obama tomorrow to explain critical remarks attributed to the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan and his advisors in a bombshell new Rolling Stone article. McChrystal’s aides describe Obama as ill-prepared, unengaged, and “intimidated” during initial meetings with general, while McChrystal himself is quoted apparently mocking Vice President Biden and accusing Kabul ambassador Karl Eikenberry of “[covering] his flank for the history books” by questioning the general’s request for more troops. McChrystal has apologized for making a “mistake,” but should he lose his job anyway? (Watch Rolling Stone‘s editor discuss McChrystal’s comments)
