About McChrys­tal

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Gen. Stan­ley McChrys­tal re­signed be­fore Pres­i­dent Barack Obama fired him. This is just an­other ad­min­is­tra­tion at­tempt to con­vince the pub­lic that our pres­i­dent is a strong, force­ful man who will book no philip­pic ut­ter­ances from his sub­or­di­nates.

While the pres­i­dent might be an in­tel­lec­tual light­weight, the four-star should have known bet­ter than to in­sult him in print. Ev­ery one in the mil­i­tary knows that, and it sur­prises me that McChrys­tal did not. LesteR G. FRazieR Les­fra­zier@aol.com
