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.
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
