Gates, Mullen comment on McChrystal situation
from U.S. Department of Defense
Judgment and civilian control of the military were at the heart of President Barack Obama's decision to accept Army Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal's resignation as the NATO and U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said. Gates and Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, both said they "fully support' Obama's decision and his nomination of Army Gen. David H. Petraeus to replace McChrystal.
