Former general Stanley McChrystal has written a book, a memoir, and now is on TV shows such as Sean Hannity, which he was on last night. Read the story about him at link #1. I sent an e mail to Hannity but didn’t catch-all the show to see if he answered it. I want to know, and also wrote my Congressman, if McChrystal is profiting from the war and his failed COIN nation building strategy that saw US casualty rates shoot up as enlisted troops risked their lives under his dictate to go on tea drinking missions in many instances, and be put at undue risk by walking into villages? Is he donating ALL proceeds to wounded American troops, as Donald Rumsfeld donated his proceeds to charity? It is fine and dandy to write a book, but a losing war general with high casualties and a failed strategy should not be profiting from the book. Are his days spent at hospitals helping veterans who lost their legs, genitals, arms, and suffered brain damage and PTSD from the way he handled the war? Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  Is former general McChrystal profiting from this book? Link:
