Breaking – CNN: General Stanley McChrystal has submitted resignation UPDATE: Maybe not – or Maybe

I guess this was to be expected:

Gen. Stanley McChrystal has submitted his resignation, Time magazine’s Joe Klein told CNN, citing an unnamed source. CNN is working to confirm Klein’s information.

I think in some ways this complicates Obama’s decision now, because this means he has to find a new General to manage the Afghan war. I think it would have been easier to reprimand him and go forward. But it sounds like he could be done.

UPDATE: Via Hotair, it seems that this is now in question:

Time is now walking back Klein’s scoop a bit, claiming that McChrystal didn’t actually tender his resignation but offered to do so. Over to you, Barry.

or is it?

The plot thickens: Toby Harnden of the Telegraph says a source tells him that McChrystal has indeed tendered his resignation and that the White House is “actively discussing a replacement” in case Obama accepts it

  1. Surprisingly or not, so far the Whitehouse is denying this story,not surprising that Joe “Slime” Klein would try to get out in front of this given his ego.
