Now that Obama has pulled in General “Betray Us” to save liberalism I must note the obvious. Petraeus and McChrystal are both experts at the art of special operations strategies. They know how to feint and distract while forcing the enemy to take the actions required for their own victory.
They both work together on many levels from SoCom to Special Forces. It is interesting to see one fall on the sword so the other, who was the bane of liberals like Obama, riding in like the white knight.
Dots, just simple little dots.
Update: More dots, as the Petraeus’ and McChrystal’s political allies swing into action to force Team Obama to get things right:
Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said the controversy surrounding the Rolling Stone profile of McChrystal revealed problems beyond the comments of McChrystal and his team.
“The civilian side, in my view, is completely dysfunctional,” said Graham.
Lieberman said the magazine article “revealed what we have known, that there is not the kind of unity in Afghanistan between our civilian and military leadership” that is necessary.
The real reason for the blow up? Fix the civilian mess that was blocking progress. Checkmate.
