McChrystal Apologizes for Article

Gen. Stanley McChrystal has apologized for a new Rolling Stone article out this week in which he criticizes the Obama administration, CBS News reports.

The article depicts McChrystal "as a lone wolf on the outs with many important figures in the Obama administration and unable to convince even some of his own soldiers that his strategy can win the war."

McChrystal is also described by an aide as "disappointed" in his first Oval Office meeting with an unprepared President Obama. The article says that although McChrystal voted for Obama, the two failed to connect from the start.

Said McChrystal: "I extend my sincerest apology for this profile. It was a mistake reflecting poor judgment and should never have happened."

Meanwhile, Reuters reports McChrystal has been summoned to the White House to meet with the president in person.
