Report: Gen. Petraeus will replace Gen. McChrystal

AP writes that "sources" tell it that General David Petraeus will replace Gen. McChrystal as commender of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, in the wake of his being relieved from duty by the president.  How ironic that "General Betray Us." as Obama's pals in Moveon.Org called him, is coming to Obama's rescue.

Cliff Thier adds:

At least Obama didn't appoint a high-ranking commission of exceptionally well-regarded and nonpartisan human resources experts to analyze all of the possible options and then recommend to him what course of action he might first soberly consider before embarking on a thorough and complete decision-making process to reach the end-game regarding the possible ass-kicking of General McChrystal.
