Petraeus replaces McChrystal



President Obama fired Gen. Stanley McChrystal Wednesday after he and his team made offensive comments to Rolling Stone magazine about the president, vice president and other key members of the national security team.

Despite wide-spread speculation that Marine Gen. James N. Mattis would be the new four star in charge of the Afghanistan war effort, Obama instead named Gen. David Petraeus, commander of Central Command. Petraeus also oversaw the surge and new counterinsurgency strategy in Iraq.

Did Obama make the right decision in firing McChrystal? And is Petraeus the right choice to take his place? Let us know what you think.
