General Stanley McChrystal, the top military commander in Afghanistan, apologized Tuesday (June 22) for remarks in his Rolling Stone profile, in which the general and his staff poke fun at top officials, including VP Joe Biden.

"I extend my sincerest apology for this profile. It was a mistake reflecting poor judgment and should never have happened," McChrystal said in a Pentagon statement. "Throughout my career, I have lived by the principles of personal honor and professional integrity. What is reflected in this article falls far short of that standard."
