Michael Yon On General McChrystal: "This War Is Above His Head"
Life was good before I went to Iraq. But after three friends were killed during the GWOT, and my growing mistrust for the media and for the US Government/Military, I quit traveling the world and went to war. The United States was in peril. I am American. Today, I do not trust McChrystal anymore than some people trust the New York Times, Obama or Bush. If McChrystal could be trusted, I would go back to my better life. McChrystal is a great killer but this war is above his head. He must be watched.
Green Beret turned independent war reporter Michael Yon delivered this damning statement from the field over the weekend. Given his history with the military, his spending more time embedded than any other journalist, and his first-person analysis of Iraq, Obama ought to be listening.
