General McChrystal Retires From the Army


The U.S. general, fired last week as the top commander in the Afghanistan war, has notified the service of his plans to retire, though he hasn’t yet submitted the official forms, an Army spokesman said. While it isn’t clear exactly when he’ll be leaving, the process typically takes a few months. This likely marks McChrystal’s last time in the headlines … until the next season of Dancing With the Stars starts up, that is. [AP]
