Lalit K Jha

Washington, Apr 19 (PTI) General Stanley McChrystal, who was sacked last year as the US and NATO commander in Afghanistan after publication of an article that quoted him as criticising the Obama administration, has been cleared of wrongdoing by the Pentagon.

The Pentagon investigation report made public yesterday disputed the accuracy of the article in the Rolling Stone magazine that McChrystal made any derogatory remarks about US President Barack Obama.

"The evidence was insufficient to substantiate a violation of applicable DoD (Department of Defense) standards with respect to any of the incidents on which we focused," said the Pentagon report released to the media.

The report concluded that not all of the events at the issue occurred as were reported in the article.

"In some instances, we found no witness who acknowledged making or hearing the comments as reports.
