McChrystal Apologizes

The next 24 to 48 hours will be quite ... interesting, to say the least. Here, from his spokesman, is Gen. Stanley McChrystal's apology for the Rolling Stone article:

"I extend my sincerest apology for this profile. It was a mistake reflecting poor judgment and should never have happened. Throughout my career, I have lived by the principles of personal honor and professional integrity. What is reflected in this article falls far short of that standard. I have enormous respect and admiration for President Obama and his national security team, and for the civilian leaders and troops fighting this war, and I remain committed to ensuring
its successful outcome."
