Obama to Replace McChrystal with Petraeus

The more I think about McChrystal, the more I want to know: How could a General could screw up so badly. What was he thinking?

Update: Obama announces David Petraeus as Stanley McChrystal's replacement. Obama said that the strategy in Afghanistan, which is McChrystal's strategy, will NOT change. Some hoped it would. Obama showed McChrystal a lot of respect, saying he was saddened and that he respected and admired McChrystal. He allowed McChrystal some dignity for his past service, despite his recent poor judgement.
I guess this also means that Hamid Karzai knows who's boss now.
