The commander of NATO armies in Afghanistan has retired after scandalous exposure

Stanley Makkristal heading a contingent of armies of the NATO in Afghanistan has resigned in connection with scandal after its interview.

we will remind, Makkristal has talked to journalist Rolling Stone about the politician of the USA in Afghanistan and, in particular, in unflattering light has exposed work of the high-ranking state employees - vice-president Joe Bajdena, the adviser for Jim Johns`s national security and other officials of administration of the USA.

the general says that some state employees instead of solving problems on conflict settlement in Afghanistan, are engaged in populism, and in case of an operation failure speak: I warned you .

Such estimation of activity of a state machinery has called the sharp criticism from the White house and the chief of the Pentagon. Makkristal subsequently took the words back, having explained that its speech was the error, similar which never should occur .

However as has informed a press - the secretary of the White house Robert Gibbs, Barack Obama has been deduced from itself by speech of Makkristala and has called it for explanations.

the general now is on a way to Washington, and I would not want to do statements before I will meet it. You know that I and Minister of Defence Gates we plan to meet it tomorrow... It seems to me that general Makkristal has drawn the conclusions which do not have under self the bases, but, I repeat, I want to meet and discuss with it a current situation personally - the president has explained.

the Ministry of Defence of the USA yet has not confirmed, but also has not denied the information on resignation, informs CNN.
