McCain, Lieberman, Graham: President must decide McChrystal’s future

The two Republicans and one independent most often looked to for conservative leadership on military issues comment on Gen. Stanley McChrystal's recent comments criticizing the administration in Rolling Stone magazine:

We have the highest respect for General McChrystal and honor his brave service and sacrifice to our nation. General McChrystal’s comments, as reported in Rolling Stone, are inappropriate and inconsistent with the traditional relationship between Commander-in-Chief and the military. The decision concerning General McChrystal’s future is a decision to be made by the President of the United States.

Not calling for him to be fired -- no one in Congress is, as far as I can tell -- but not supporting him.
