Abu M beat me to the punch here. Here are his thoughts on LTG McChrystal: McKiernan Out, McChrystal In
As I have stated earlier, LTG McChrystal is more than qualified for combat command. I also stated that implementing a counterinsurgency strategy fell to GEN McKiernan, not GEN Petraeus, and questioned how he and the Obama administration could save Afghanistan. Thankfully, the Obama administration acted swiftly and replaced GEN McKiernan quickly. They fired a general that wasn't getting the job done - holy $h!7!!! Bravo, Obama administration! Bravo, Secretary Gates (pbuh)!
