Robert Gibbs is on the teevee reading statements, about Afghanistan! Obama and Karzai had an iChat this morning and it was “very productive.” But what is the president’s reaction to all of these crazy Rolling Stone quotes? Well, says Gibbs, motherfucking Stanley McChrystal will have his skinny traitorous ass hauled before the President tomorrow and will then be executed in Utah, on Twitter. What a weird time.
“Is McChrystal’s job safe?”
“We’ll have more to say about that after the meeting.”
What’s happening, as far as anyone can tell, is the commanding officer of U.S. troops in Afghanistan is talking crazy shit about the Commander in Chief, and whatever Biden is (Vice President of Troops), and … well this is just weird.
“We owe it to the men and women fighting over there to implement the policy that we agreed to,” says Gibbs. “As Secretary Gates said, General McChrystal has made ‘an enormous mistake.'”
Why hasn’t McChrystal called the president yet? As for Obama, he didn’t call the general, as he wants to fire the sonofabitch face to face.
Gibbs: “I gave [the president] the article last night, and he was angry.” How angry? “Angry.”
Meanwhile, haha, Rolling Stone has what’s her name, Lady GaGa, on its website. UPDATE: They just emailed the link, the story is online now, on the Internet! It is actually fascinating. Good for this reporter, Michael Hastings, who will likely be offed tonight by McChrystal’s black-ops stay-behind assassins. Ha ha do you think we’re kidding, about McChrystal’s dark past?
Besides, the public eye has never been a place where McChrystal felt comfortable: Before President Obama put him in charge of the war in Afghanistan, he spent five years running the Pentagon’s most secretive black ops.
This guys sounds like a complete psychopath.
Execute McChrystal, Obama, you must do this, in Utah, on Twitter.
