The Pentagon had initially expected the top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan, Army General Stanley McChrystal, to make a request for more soldiers soon after delivering his confidential assessment on the war.

"He really in meeting with him didn't try to explain it, he just acknowledged that he had made a terrible decision," said Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. The Rolling Stone article that will leave a black mark on his career made Admiral Mike Mullen sick when he saw it. "He is a friend, an extraordinary officer. He made a severe mistake and I think the actions that were taken were appropriate."
