Wow! I guess this is what happens when you bad-mouth the boss in Rolling Stone.

Sad. Dude is a real military badass who couldnt play the political BS that is required when you have stars on your shoulder.

This guy knows what he was doing, he should have been left the fuck alone to do his job.

It is hard to believe he ran his mouth off that much with a journalist around though..

He should have saved that shit for retirement, or even resigned before continuing to serve as General in a state of war and harbor such contempt for his civilian superiors.

+1..... I mean you don't badmouth the boss...especially in the context we're dealing with...but dude knew what he was doing, if that means anything in this clusterfack of a situation. Patreaus is good though, maybe new blood is good. Personally, Chuck Norris should get the job though. They could beam a pic of his beard over Afghanistan like the bat signal and them suckers would put themselves in guantanamo! Word has it that Osama has Walker Texas Ranger complete series on DVD...and thats why he's hiding

You never slander your boss in public.

How could he not have remembered that? Maybe hubris have him the feeling that "he was in charge" and thought it wouldn't get back to the Administration.

And even if it did, so what, "I'm in charge."

Sad way to basically end your military career because brass that high don't get desk jobs after being relieved of duty for stupidity. They essentially get pushed out the back door.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
