WASHINGTON - At a precarious moment in the war in Afghanistan, President Barack Obama prepared to hear his top war commander explain biting published complaints about the commander in chief and his aides. Even before their showdown, the White House's rebuke of Gen. Stanley McChrystal suggested it would be hard for him to save his job.
Ahead of his meeting with the president, McChrystal arrived at the Pentagon for meetings, including once scheduled with Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
On his arrival, he denied to NBC News that he's offered his resignation. "Come on, you know better than that. No!"

Joe Klein! ...your source in the White House sucks!!
Mmmmm. Should be an interesting day.
Boy all of these reporters that are reporting this are looking very stupid right now. He typed up a resignation letter, didn’t he? Didn’t he?? What kind of journalism is this??
On a side note, would love to be a fly on the wall in that meeting with the President. It’s going to be a good one. Wonder if Joe “Stand Up for Chuck” Biden will be there...
Joe Klein delivered the message Obama wanted.
So, McChrystal is not giving Obama the easy out. Should be an interesting day indeed.
Why lay those particular cards on the table to the press?
FRiends, watch out. That MSNBC (what do you expect from them) link may slow your puter down to a snail’s pace.
This is just more proof showing what a little, little man the usurper is. He can dish is out, but he can’t take it. Whaaaa!
He wants his unemployment check! lol
This will be interesting. I actually give Obama some latitude either way on this. There is so much truth in the article, but if I was CIC I would not allow this to pass, as it opens up the potential for a deluge of criticism within the ranks, and this is open criticism is out of bounds. I don’t fault the General for doing it even if it is wrong. Also, regardless of Obama’s decision-making here, he is still a dreadful CIC and President on all accounts. That doesn’t mean he can’t occasionally do something correctly.

Get out while the gettin’s good Mac. Let some other dancing prancing perfumed price get his name tied to Obama’s Failure.
Joe Klein doesn’t even rise to the level of his source.
Apparently, the resignation announcement was designed to push McChrystal into doing so.
WOW, who to believe? Kalee rolls eyes.
The WH is caught again.
I believe Kyl and MvChrystal, O lies.
“Also, regardless of Obamas decision-making here, he is still a dreadful CIC and President on all accounts. “
Bo is a traitor and is tearing down our country. The General did vote for BO but appears to have seen the light. I applaud him for doing what he thinks is necessary to resist the destruction of our country.
He should have resigned and stole Obama’s thunder.
