A report by the Department of Defense Inspector General casts doubt on the accuracy of the article in Rolling Stone magazine which cost Gen. Stanley McChrystal his job as the top commander in Afghanistan.
“Not all the events at issue occurred as reported in the article,” the report says. “In some instances, we found no witness who acknowledged making or hearing the comments as reported.”
Specifically, the investigation could not confirm quotes attributed to “sources familiar” with a meeting between the president and the Pentagon brass at which McChrystal thought the then newly elected president looked “uncomfortable and intimidated,” and it could not confirm quotes attributed to “an adviser” stating that McChrystal was “pretty disappointed” with the president after a one-on-one meeting with the commander-in-chief.
All this around the same McChrystal was offered a NEW position within the White House....

WHAT? What is this world coming to when you can't trust the word of a 'journalist' that writes for a rock and roll magazine over the word of a four star General? I mean, seriously?

I always felt it was a hatchet job. I never understood why McCrystal gave an interview to Rolling Stone.
