As expected, General McChrystal gave his letter of resignation today to President Obama. The President has since announced that General Petraeus will be taking overseeing the theatre in Afghanistan.
Petraeus has more than proven himself to be an excellent general and will give good guidance to the military men and women who are in harms way. While I am still not convinced that McChrystal leaving is the best of ideas in the middle of a war, at least we have a very fine replacement.
