Afghanistan

McChrystal Furious

President Obama appears to have accepted his ambassador to Afghanistan’s advice to not increase the American troop commitment until the Karzai government has proven its competence. One man who’s not happy about it? General Stanley McChrystal. The BBC reports that McChrystal is “fuming” about Ambassador Karl Eikenberry’s intervention. Previously, Eikenberry served as the top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan for two years.
