For Immediate Release

Statement by General Stanley McChrystal

This morning the President accepted my resignation as Commander of U.S. and NATO Coalition Forces in Afghanistan.

It was out of respect for this commitment -- and a desire to see the mission succeed -- that I tendered my resignation.

It has been my privilege and honor to lead our nation’s finest.
