In the middle of a war, the general hangs out with the staff of Rolling Stone magazine?

By now everyone know that General Stanley McChrystal made some injudicious remarks to reporters at Rolling Stone magazine. 

I, for one, forgive him, because I too have been seduced by the press and had my remarks taken out of context.  It takes real skill and experience to avoid that. 

But the more important question is how is it that General McChrystal would be communicating with Rolling Stone magazine when he is supposed to be focused on ending this very expensive Afghan war?

Does he see himself as a celebrity hanging out with the papparazzi?
