There were no revelations. McChrystal is Left of Center and voted for Obama in 2008. He was canned by Obama not for what he said but what Rollingstones said he said which is a shame.A Hannity Exclusive With General Stanley McChrystal
He was the architect behind the Afghanistan war strategy until a public clash with the White House ended a brilliant career. Now, Sean gets the truth behind the controversy with Gen. Stanley McChrystal himself.
Watch the must-see interview, Monday at 9p/12a ET on Hannity.
As I have said before, ALL generals are appointed by the president and approved by the Senate and are therefore political appointments. As a general rule, left presidents surround themselves with lefty generals and the same goes for presidents who are right of center.
There are no radical left or right generals anymore. Even Eisenhower was a centrist. Before WWII FDR put a few righty generals, like MacArthur, is boxes so he did not have to deal with them. In fact Bush-41 but Colon Powell in a box as Chairman, JCofS to keep me out of a major command and that paid off during the Persian Gulf War as the right general for that job was Gen. Schwarzkopf!
Lefty presidents do not chose good combat field commanders. Neither McChrystal or Petraeus were good combat field commanders.
