General McChrystal Resigns The media world is abuzz today with the question of "Should Obama Fire General McChrystal?" This controversy has been stoked by an article that appeared in the most recent issue of 'Rolling Stone'. The Rolling Stone article inadvertently paints the picture of quagmire in Afghanistan. General Stanley McChrystal is currently the Commander of the International Security Assistance Force and Commander of the US Forces Afghanistan; jobs so daunting that McChrystal (according to many) feels the need to eat once a day and sleep only four hours a night. Here are some of the quotes in the article that have put McChrystal on the hotseat McChrystal's first meeting with Obama: According to sources familiar with the meeting, "McChrystal thought Obama looked "uncomfortable and intimidated" by the roomful of military brass. McChrystal's first one-on-one meeting with Obama: It was a 10-minute photo op," says an adviser to McChrystal. "Obama clearly didn't know anything about him, who he was. Here's the guy who's going to run his ***ing war, but he didn't seem very engaged. The Boss was pretty disappointed." One aide calls Jim Jones, a retired four-star general and veteran of the Cold War, a "clown" who remains "stuck in 1985." However, McChrystal's questionable antics long precede this event. General McChrystal played a key role in the Pat Tillman cover-up. Perhaps the most bothersome quote from this piece though is on Afghanistan's democratically-elected(???) President Hamid Karzai ...

Richard Nixon resigns - August 8, 1974 "Good evening: This is the 37th time I have spoken to you from this office, where so many decisions have been made that shape the history of this nation. Each time I have done so to discuss with you some matter that I believe affected the national interest. In all the decisions I have made in my public life I have always tried to do what was best for the nation. Throughout the long and difficult period of Watergate, I have felt it was my duty to persevere -- to make every possible effort to complete the term of office to which you elected me. In the past few days, however, it has become evident to me that I no longer have a strong enough political base in the Congress to justify continuing that effort. I would have preferred to carry through to the finish whatever the personal agony it would have involved, and my family unanimously urged me to do so. But the interests of the nation must always come before any personal considerations. From the discussions I have had with Congressional and other leaders I have concluded that because of the Watergate matter I might not have the support of the Congress that I would consider necessary to back the very difficult decisions and carry out the duties of this office in the way the interests of the nation will require. I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interests of America first. America needs a full-time President and a ...
