In a surprise meeting, President Obama met with Gen. Stanley McChrystal in Denmark today. Obama, who was overseas lobbying for Chicago’s bid for the Olympics, met with McChrystal, the top commander in Afghanistan, for about 25 minutes on Air Force One. According to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, the meeting was set up after Obama learned that McChrystal was in London this week. No doubt the timing is interesting. Last weekend McChrystal told 60 Minutes that he had talked to Obama only once since he took over the Afghan command—a surprising stat for a president who values outreach. On Wednesday, McChrystal participated via videoconference in a White House strategy meeting on Afghanistan. Today’s meeting was the first time McChrystal and Obama have met face to face. Will the photo be enough to please critics who say Obama hasn't talked to his general enough?
