Obama Furious With McChrystal and Orders Him to DC

Stanley McChrystal has long been a schmuck. He openly mocked Obama in this video I've posted from November. He should've been fired then. Now, the guy criticizes the commander in chief in an interview with the Rolling Stone? He (his aides) also mocks Biden. Read excerpts. It is very school boyish.
He's risking the lives of our soldiers by behaving in such a manner and he's risking our lives as American civilians. For what? So that Rolling Stone can make a lot of money? McChrystal needs to be promptly fired for insubordination. But first, he should be publicly shamed.

The top commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, has been summoned to the White House to explain biting and unflattering remarks he made to a freelance writer about President Barack Obama and others in the Obama administration.

The face-to-face comes as pundits are already calling for McChrystal to resign for insubordination.

McChrystal has been instructed to fly from Kabul to Washington today to attend Obama’s regular monthly security team meeting tomorrow at the White House.

An administration official says McChrystal was asked to attend in person rather than by secure video teleconference, “where he will have to explain to the Pentagon and the commander in chief his quotes about his colleagues in the piece.” Read more at Politico
The article isn't out yet but here is a sampling of McChrystal's immaturity:
McChrystal described his first meeting with Obama as disappointing and said that Obama was unprepared for the meeting.

National Security Advisor Jim Jones is described by a McChrystal aide as a “clown” stuck in 1985.

Others aides joked about Biden’s last name as sounding like “Bite me” since Biden opposed the surge. Read more
