"It appears that the administration, unlike the past administration, doesn't want the views of the generals known," Blunt told a conservative news radio program in an interview. "Apparently it's okay for Gen. McChrystal to be on '60 Minutes,' but it's not okay for him to update Congress."
Blunt accused the administration of being weary of letting McChrystal air his recommendation for a troop increase in Afghanistan publicly, calling on President Barack Obama to make McChrystal available for testimony before Congress.
