By Andrew Moran     Jun 23, 2010 in Politics
Washington - After speculation about General Stanley McChrystal's position as Commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, it has officially been reported that General David Petraeus will replace McChrystal.
According to the Associated Press, United States President Barack Obama will name General David Petraeus as the new Commander of the forces in Afghanistan.
The President’s decision was made after General Stanley McChrystal made critical remarks about the Obama administration.
Immediately after the interview with Rolling Stone went public, McChrystal apologized profusely several times, reports Business Insider.
In June 2009, the U.S. Senate approved McChrystal as the new commander in Afghanistan and was promoted to General. Three months later, McChrystal published a 66-page report highlighting his analysis and urging the Obama administration to add more troops to Afghanistan “if we are going to win.”
