Would you fire Gen. McChrystal?
If Gen. Stanley McChrystal were your employee, would you fire him? He said some bad things in a [I]Rolling Stone[/I] interview about his bosses, mocking President Obama, Vice President Biden, and others in charge of the country's Afghan war effort. At the same time, he appears to be an extremely effective, shrewd, humane commander in the field. You can find plenty of commentaries for and against firing him this morning. Even after we find out whether he survives his visit to the White House woodshed today, the question remains, would you fire a key employee who publicly ridiculed your company's leadership and policies?
