Meanwhile, the Pentagon has announced that Lieutenant General John "Mick" Nicholson has been chosen to replace General John Campbell as the commander of international forces in Afghanistan. Nicholson is currently the head of NATO’s Allied Land Command. His selection must be confirmed by the Senate. This comes amid a deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan that caused President Obama to reverse his promise to withdraw the majority of U.S. troops by the end of last year.
