Okay, so the volcano-whose-name-you-can’t-pronounce changed McChrystal’s plans, and he ended up on a long bus ride with the Rolling Stone reporter. And the bus was stocked with beer.
Now, it’s important to note that this is a general so disciplined he manages to eat just one meal a day, sleep four hours a night, and run six miles a day.
Think about it. If the Rolling Stone reporter could manage to keep his cool during that long bus ride long enough to get McChrystal on the record, who’s the more disciplined?
And if McChrystal is the only one in the whole military armamentarium capable of carrying out Afghanistan policy, what does this say about the military?
