Because he was a naughty boy and said things he shouldn't have said. Sort of like when you hear your parents making funny noises in their room after dark, you aren't supposed to make those noises in public while telling people that those are the noises mommy and daddy make after dark. Or when you hear an adult say a bad word, you don't repeat it.
There, is that simple enough?

He was talking smack about his boss and the democratically elected civilian leadership of our country. I don't disagree with what he said specifically, but he should have known better than to say what he did. Personally, I think with the ninny rules of engagement that have been set by our current administration have effectively tied our military personnel's hands and there really is no way to win. Obama has never served int he military and he doesn't understand the task at hand and what it will take to end this whole thing. His policies regarding the wars will just make them endless until we get strong leadership back in the WH that will either make the decision to go full force and end it, or pull out and end it. Either way, end the damned wars.

The comments were made during an interview for the Rolling Stone Magazine that isn't even available to the public yet. It goes on sale on Friday. Not only that but the SOME remarks are NOT going to be published in the magazine, because they were "off the record". The comments that were published are things like: McChrystal thought Obama looked "uncomfortable and intimidated" by the roomful of military brass. Rolling Stone has the article posted on their site. Basicly He felt that the Obama White House doesn't have a clue on what they are doing!

The bigger question is why? Did he want out of the entire situation, and made the remarks to force Obama's hand?
