🚨🧐 New 🧵

1/ Stanley McChrystal is making headlines lately, so what better time to take a dive into his background. For those unaware, Stanley followed in his grandfather and father's footsteps serving in the Army. Herbert J McChrystal Sr. served during WWI (1895-1954)...
2/ Herbert J. McChrystal Jr. served during WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam. Interestingly, Jr. was born in the Panama Canal Zone just like NoName. Small world, huh? Wiki Source 👇 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_J._McChrystal
3/ Stanley's Wiki info. "In February 1981, McChrystal moved to South Korea as intelligence and operations officer (S-2/S-3) for the United Nations Command Support Group—Joint Security Area." Source👇 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_A._McChrystal
4/ "After a year as a senior service college fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, he moved up to command the entire 75th Ranger Regiment from June 1997 to August 1999..."
5/ "..then spent another year as a military fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations."
6/ Promoted to brigadier general pre-9/11.
7/ During his tenure as commander of JSOC, McChrystal was also criticized for his role in the aftermath of the 2004 death by friendly fire of Ranger and former professional football player Pat Tillman. More in this thread. https://twitter.com/bigredwavenow/status/1263679303331405824?s=20
8/ "According to Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, beginning in late spring 2007 JSOC and CIA Special Activities Division teams launched a new series of highly effective covert operations that coincided with the Iraq War troop surge of 2007."
9/ "They did this by killing or capturing many of the key al-Qa'ida leaders in Iraq." Listen to this video featuring Woodward on 60 Minutes from 2008.
12/ McChrystal retired from the Army following his firing/resignation under Obama. His retirement ceremony was featured on C-Span on 7/23/10. Listen to McChrystal as he begins his speech at the 52:50 mark. Source 👇 https://www.c-span.org/video/?294723-1/general-mcchrystal-retirement-ceremony
13/ "This is frustrating. I spent a career waiting to give a retirement speech, and lie about what a great soldier I was. Then people show up who were actually there. It proves what Doug Brown taught me long ago; nothing ruins a good war story like an eyewitness."
14/ "But to those here tonight who feel the need to contradict my memories with the truth, remember, I was there too. I have stories on all of you, photos on many, and I know a Rolling Stone Reporter." Stanley A. McChrystal

Haunting words, don't ya think?
15/ Sadly, Michael Hastings died in an explosive car crash at the age of 33 on June 18, 2013. "The explosion was so intense that it took the LA County assistant corner, Ed Winter, two days to identify the burned-beyond recognition body of Hastings." https://www.businessinsider.com/what-we-now-know-about-michael-hastings-mysterious-car-crash-2013-7
16/ In 2010, after leaving the Army, McChrystal joined Yale University as a Jackson Institute for Global Affairs senior fellow. He teaches a course entitled "Leadership", a graduate-level seminar with some spots reserved for undergraduates.
17/ McChrystal is Chairman of the Board of Siemens Government Technologies, and is on the strategic advisory board of Knowledge International, a licensed arms dealer whose parent company is EAI, a business "very close" to the United Arab Emirates government.

21/ I stumbled upon this 2009 article, The Pope, by Dalton Fury. Fury retired from the military with over 20 years of service, and served as a staff officer under McChrystal in the late 90’s before leaving for 1st SFOD-D. A short, worthwhile read.

22/ As @debibug pointed out recently in reference to a Q post, "The Pope will be Having A terrible May!" McChrystal is outed as Dems deploying DARPA-funded AI-driven information warfare tool to target pro-Trump accounts https://twitter.com/debibug/status/1263642117265473536?s=20
23/ McChrystal's memoir, My Share of the Task, published by Portfolio of the Penguin Group, was released on 1/7/13. The autobiography had been scheduled to be released in November 2012, but was delayed due to security clearance approvals required from the Department of Defense.
24/ On January 8, 2013, McChrystal appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe program, in which he endorsed stronger U.S. gun control laws, saying that assault weapons were for the battlefield, not schools or streets. Listen👇
25/ Fall 2014; Stanley A. McChrystal's townhouse in Alexandria, Va., was where Michael Flynn registered his new company consulting and intelligence business, the Flynn Intel Group.
26/ Wow! Did you know? McChrystal’s only child (a son), Sam, works for a defense intelligence firm. McChrystal says that he has a close relationship with his son, who lives near him in Alexandria, Virginia. Source👇 https://heavy.com/news/2018/12/stanley-mcchrystal-wife-family/

28/ In January 2016, McChrystal became the Chair of the Board of Service Year Alliance — an organization merged from ServiceNation, the Franklin Project at The Aspen Institute, and the Service Year Exchange. Service Year Alliance aims to make a year of full-time service —
29/ a service year — a common expectation and opportunity for young Americans of all backgrounds. McChrystal called on the 2016 presidential candidates to embrace practical solutions to restore social trust in the United States "such as engaging young Americans in a year...
30/ or more of national service." He has also said, "A service year that teaches young Americans the habits of citizenship and the power of working in teams to build trust is one of the most powerful ways this generation can help restore political and civic responsibility—
31/ and in the process help to heal a wounded nation."
