A Pentagon inquiry into a Rolling Stone magazine profile of Gen. Stanley McChrystal that led to his dismissal as the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan has cleared him of wrongdoing.
So, the man whom Obama dismissed from his position saying that he had fallen short of, “the standard that should be set by a commanding general,” that guy… Yea. Um. He’s innocent of the charges.
The Pentagon inquiry also concluded that not all of the events at issue happened as reported in the Rolling Stone article.
“In some instances, we found no witnesses who acknowledged making or hearing the comments as reported,” the Pentagon report said. “In other instances, we confirmed that the general substance of an incident at issue occurred, but not in the exact context described in the article.”
Defamation of character much, Rolling Stone?
**An interesting side note – Obama tapped McChrystal to lead his wife’s Military Family Advisory Board Initiative thing, 4 days after this IG report was finished. Sounds like a little… “Oops… Uh… My bad. Here… Have this.”
