This isn’t good.

If you were to guess how many times the President has had a conversation with the U.S. Commander of Operations in Afghanistan, what would it be?

Countless? A bi-weekly update perhaps? Monthly, at worst?

Try once.

“I’ve talked to the president, since I’ve been here, once on a VTC ,” General Stanley McChrystal told CBS reporter David Martin in a television interview that aired Sunday.

“You’ve talked to him once in 70 days?” Mr. Martin followed up.

“That is correct,” the general replied.


How were things different under Bush? You be the judge.
