British commander in Afghanistan quits - source

A commander of Britain's elite special forces in Afghanistan has resigned, a defence source said on Saturday, declining to give further details.

Major Sebastian Morley, a reservist commander with the Special Air Service (SAS), blamed a chronic lack of investment in equipment for the deaths of some of his soldiers, according to the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No thinking military person wants to see themselves or forces under their command mired in a complete exercise in futility, where people who make the decisions from long distances away about personnel and equipment have not a clue as to what that commander and their troops are really facing on a daily basis.
