McChrystal to resign?

So much for Obama's 'good war'.

There's an excellent article written by Bill Roggio here

Remember Obama once wrote these words during his campaign:

Senator McCain said - just months ago - that "Afghanistan is not in trouble because of our diversion to Iraq." I could not disagree more. Our troops and our NATO allies are performing heroically in Afghanistan, but I have argued for years that we lack the resources to finish the job because of our commitment to Iraq. That's what the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said earlier this month. And that's why, as President, I will make the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban the top priority that it should be. This is a war that we have to win.

Now Obama is demonstrating a lack of focus and commitment in this war, a "war that we have to win".

Edit: This says what I've been thinking far more articulately than I can.
