Washington, D.C. – House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) released the following statement regarding the recent profile on General Stanley McChrystal:


"I was disappointed by the Rolling Stone profile of General McChrystal, and I hope that we will be able to sort this out soon and move forward so we can get back to winning the war in Afghanistan.  Nothing is more important than defeating the terrorists who want to harm us.  That should be paramount."
