Obama aces McChrystal test

I’ve been mostly–all right, totally–negative about Barack Obama as president, leader, politician, whathaveyou. But at first blush, he handled the Gen. McChrystal controversy perfectly, and gave solid reasons for removing him from command: civilian over military rule; the impact of divisiveness within the chain of command. He treated McChrystal with respect, as well.

On the other hand, per John Derbyshire, we need to get our buns out of Afghanistan and devote resources instead to protection here.
