Posted By on Tue, Jun 22, 2010 at 3:02 PM

Sen. John McCain releases a joint statement with Sens. Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham on the comments by Gen. Stanley McChrystal and his staff, as reported in "The Runaway General," the Rolling Stone article that has the Washington in an uproar today:

“We have the highest respect for General McChrystal and honor his brave service and sacrifice to our nation. General McChrystal’s comments, as reported in Rolling Stone, are inappropriate and inconsistent with the traditional relationship between Commander-in-Chief and the military. The decision concerning General McChrystal’s future is a decision to be made by the President of the United States.”
