Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who was forced to retire in July after an embarrassing Rolling Stone article quoted him and his staff making disparaging remarks about top White House officials, is taking a job at Yale, POLITICO has learned.
McChrystal will teach grad students a course in leadership at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs in New Haven, which is opening this fall. He’ll be in good company: McChrystal will join John Negroponte, the former U.S. ambassador and former deputy secretary of state, as well as former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo at the institute.
McChrystal had been considering a number of opportunities from a wide range of places, from large corporations to nongovernmental organizations and even some wounded warrior groups seeking his leadership, sources said. And he will undoubtedly have a future on the speaker’s circuit.
I think his behavior was intentional. Didn't want his name connected to that farce and in the process, has secured a well paying (I'm sure) private section job. Smart move-

As far as worrying that we are no longer using our tax dollars on him, he will continue to draw a pension from the military and health care benefits.
Yes, but his 20 years of service got him appointed by Obama... His 20 years of experience and dedication to the US military was NOT what lost him his job... It was the words of his aides to the likes of Rolling Stone.
