"Another Runaway General" by Michael Hastings

So this is the hot article out right now, and a follow-up piece to the one that got General Stanley McChrystal fired as the lead general in Afghanistan (you know, the one where he and his staff wacked a few Bud Light Limes and called Joe Biden "Joe Bite Me"). But anyway, apparently the US Army employed Psychological Operations specialists to sway visiting senators to give them money and effectively prolong the war. Noteworthy quote screamed by an Army Colonel: "It's not illegal if I say it isn't!" Ruthless! Also, pretty fucking scary.
