Gates: McChrystal Made 'Significant Mistake'

Tuesday, 22 Jun 2010 12:33 PM

Defense Secretary Robert Gates says the top U.S. general in Afghanistan made "a significant mistake" and used poor judgment in remarks to a magazine reporter.

Gates says Gen. Stanley McChrystal has apologized to him. Gates also says he has recalled McChrystal to Washington to discuss the matter in person. That's on top of the White House summons that McChrystal appear there Wednesday.

The Pentagon says McChrystal will hold a separate meeting with Gates.

Gates' statement says nothing about whether McChrystal should keep his job.
