I was thrilled to see the headlines this morning that Gen. McChrystal is going to be taking over as the General in charge of the Afghanistan mission.
That's phenomenal news.
There are very few people you come across where nearly everyone who has worked with him/her tell you, "Yup, this person really lives up to the hype...he/she is the real deal." Gen. McChrystal is one of those rare people.
Let's hope he doesn't get beat up too badly during the confirmation hearings, and then let's get him in the driver's seat for Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) as fast as we can.
