What's Your Opinion?

Compiled by Bill O’Neill

Question: Do you think President Obama should have fired General Stanley McChrystal, commander of our forces in Afghanistan, as a result of comments the general made about the Administration in a Rolling Stone article? Or should he have just reprimanded McChrystal?


“I don’t think so. The comments he made weren’t all that wrong. President Obama just should’ve given him a reprimand – and in private. The whole world doesn’t have to know they’re fighting.” –Sarah Khan, Queens “I don’t think so. The comments he made weren’t all that wrong.

“President Obama was right to fire him. He was very disrespectful. And if he didn’t fire him, President Obama would look very foolish to the rest of the world.” –Astrid Tolud, Canarsie “President Obama was right to fire him. He was very disrespectful.

“He does have freedom of speech. But with the war going on, he should’ve kept the morale of the troops up – and chosen his words more wisely. So President Obama should have fired him.” –Dominic Breen, Canarsie “He does have freedom of speech.

It’s in the Constitution.” –Hamilton Rivera, Canarsie “I don’t think he should have fired him. This is America. We have a right to speak our mind. This is what America is all about.
