Time's Joe Klein tells CNN that Stanley McChrystal has submitted his resignation, to the president! CNN has yet to confirm this, but wouldn't you trust Joe Klein with your life? Update: Video of Obama commenting on McChrystal, after the jump.
Here's what the president had to say about McChrystal after a Cabinet meeting. Is Hillary Clinton laughing? Good for her:
Oh sure, why not speculate: things do not look happy for Bud Light Lime lover Stanley McChrystal, huh? Note how Obama is very clear that no matter which general is in charge, the point is that we must Win Afghanistan. Actually he doesn't even go that far — he just says the goal is to stop Al Qaeda from harming Americans. Take that as an acknowledgment of the war in Afghanistan's dim prospects. Jesus. Ugh. We'll see what happens tomorrow, after the terribly awkward Obama-McChrystal meeting.
