“The Deltas are psychos…You have to be a certified psychopath to join
the Delta Force…”, a US Army colonel from Fort Bragg once told me back
in the 1980’s.  Now President Obama has elevated the most notorious of
the psychopaths, General Stanley McChrystal, to head the US and NATO
military command in Afghanistan.  McChrystal’s rise to leadership is
marked by his central role in directing special operations teams
engaged in extrajudicial assassinations, systematic torture, bombing of
civilian communities and search and destroy missions.  He is the very
embodiment of the brutality and gore that accompanies military-driven
empire building.  Between September 2003 and August 2008, McChrystal
directed the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations (JSO) Command which
operates special teams in overseas assassinations.
