World & Nation

Obama keeps top battlefield commanders at arm’s length As much as President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush disagree in their views of war, they differ more on a key question of presidential style: their relationships with their top battlefield commanders. For Bush, Gen. David H. Petraeus

assumed the role of a trusted presidential adviser, frequently visiting and calling the White House. But for Obama, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal occupies a defined place in the chain of command, and the two have met face-to-face only twice. The reasons for the marked contrasts run deeper than personal preferences, however. Under Obama, top Pentagon officials have worked to keep McChrystal out of the spotlight, in part to avoid creating “another celebrity general.” source: mctdirect.com
