Rolling Stone has now posted the article that got Gen. Stanley McChrystal fired — or not — on its Web site. It is, of course, compelling reading, at least once you ignore the in-line-text promos for other stories on the Rolling Stone Web site.

Today, however, there’s news on that front. The team has rehired Andrew Kurtz.
