      Excerpt from C Barr's link...

      Rolling Stone's Michael Hastings, still in Afghanistan, told NBC that it all started with the eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano -- which prolonged Hastings' time with McChrystal and his team. The ash cloud forced the general to take a bus from Paris, where he celebrated an anniversary with his wife, gave a speech. and met with French officials, to Berlin.

      Hastings told NBC that McChrystal and co. were boozing on the bus "the whole way." He added: "They let loose." The general may now lose his job as a result.

          Some on the right might like the idea of a cowboy general tossing back a few brews with his aides but the reality of a four star general being so hammered that he loses his judgment and talks trash with a Rolling Stone reporter won't sit too well.
