    Yea this is a pretty sad & disturbing revelation. Our kids are being slaughtered over there every day yet our President only takes the time to talk to this man one time? I'm just shocked that more people aren't outraged over this. Oh well i guess it really is an Obama-Run Mainstream Media at this point. I saw the General on 60 Minutes and he seemed like a very intelligent & common sense thinking man. I couldn't help but think while i was listening to him that he really would probably be a better President than our current one. He seemed much more informed and much more concerned for our kids than our current President is. I did disagree with the man on some of his assessments but he really did earn my respect. This President is failing our kids over there and they definitely deserve better than this.

    That's utter negligence of BHO. Disgusting, IMO.

    Didnt Obama say Afghanistan was the right war? If he thought it was such an honorable war to fight, why hasn't he spent more time addressing it?

    Just another lie exposed.

    So what's the big deal?

    Truman only meet MacArthur ONCE during the Korean War

    With all of the video conferencing equipment available for meetings.

    Why would they need personal face to face contact?

    Lets be honest here for a minute. Our kids are being brutally slaughtered over there every day yet our President chooses to talk to this man only once? Come on,even a Hopey Changey Sheep can see that this is extremely sad & disturbing. Can't they see this? This is a real travesty and our kids certainly deserve better than this.

    So what? Is McCrystal in the oval office daily? And are there not people responsible for informing the president? You know like how they warned Bush about al queda planning to hurt us and required observation? Do you mean like that?

    Yes, and he is supposed to be our commander in chief, remember, the tough talk on Afganistan before the election, " I will listen to my generals in the field." It does not appear that he is listening,instead he is playing politics with the lives of our soldiers over there.
