General McChrystal has little to say about the episode that led to the article in Rolling Stone. He writes that the comments attributed to his team were “unacceptable” but adds that he was surprised by the tone of the article, which he had expected would show the camaraderie among the American, British, French and Afghan officers.

McChrystal Book Arrives
Michael Gordon, former Judy Miller co-author on some of her bogus Iraq WMD pieces, just posted at NYT preview of "long-awaited" memoir by disgraced former Afghan war commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal. Even Gordon can't make it sound like anything but a snore (perhaps not enough in book on Gordon's favorite topic, the Iranian threat). The general talks about his conflicts with the Obama team but not in harsh way. No idea if it even mentions his "Pat Tillman problem."
