    DOD Inspector General finds that Stanley McChrystal and staff did nothing wrong in doing Rolling Stone interview.

    "In the report, the inspector general writes, "The evidence was insufficient to substantiate a violation of applicable DoD standards." The report goes on to say, Not all of the events at issue occurred as reported in the article."

    Well considering that we are over there looking for something that never existed...

    It is not a Fox document, it is a House of Representatives document.

    Assume that I have a family friend who was one of the many inspectors whose reports about WMP in Iraq pre-war was ignored.

    Assume your family friend could have been wrong.

    Why are we arguing Iraq on a thread about something that happened to McChrystal while he was in charge of Afghanistan?

    Also, just because the General didn't violate the letter of the Code of Conduct doesn't mean he didn't create a staff of condescending douchebags who didn't bother to politely hide their contempt for their bosses during a visit by a reporter from a national magazine.

    Very true Arazel...the General was no saint and, despite not technically violating the Code, there are certain things you simply do not do in a theatre of war. Like the saying goes, partisianship ends at the water's edge. His personal feelings about his commander were meaningless...he was there to do a job. That's what he signed up for and you cannot tell me he didn't know better.

    Um, no. The person who posted that has a pattern of not reading and not comprehending and simply posting anything that might or might not be related to the issue.

    This thread is going to be locked, so I might as well point those things out here.
