McChrystal Leaves White House After 30 Minutes With Obama

Update: AP says Obama will replace McChrystal with David Petraeus.
Update: Bye bye McChrystal! Firing him was the only choice.

Since Stan has left the White House when his name was on the list of people meeting on Afghanistan and Pakistan strategy, my bet is Stan is fired. He probably turned in his resignation. 30 minutes is a pretty short meeting for someone who's going to be sticking around. Obama probably didn't say much, since their conversation might end up on the cover of the National Enquirer.
Folks are saying McChrystal's deputy, Dave Rodriguez, is a likely choice to take over.
