I wish they could have restored his name and reputation. Money cannot replace character damage.
Read the original Rolling Stone article and tell me if McChrystal was disparaging toward any in the administration.
http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/17390/119236. Nothing. McChrystal is a warrior. History will show that Petraeus cannot accomplish the vision of McChrystal. The Rolling Stone article says: "Newsweek magazine calls Gen. Petraeus kind of a dweeb, a teacher's pet with a Ranger's tab, McChrystal is a snake-eating rebel, a "Jedi" commander."
Unfortunately, it is occasions like this that give police officers a bad name.
