Top UK commander to lose job over Afghan war

Top UK commander to lose job over Afghan war 13 Jun 2010 Britain will replace its most senior military officer, Air Chief Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup, over failures in Afghanistan, a top British official has suggested. In an interview with the Sunday Times, Defense Secretary Liam Fox said his ministry will be replacing Sir Stirrup as well as Sir Bill Jeffrey, the department's top civil servant, by next autumn. Fox said the move was meant to seek to "draw line" under Britain's failure in Afghanistan -- which has been blamed on the military's "incompetent" war equipment.
