Jones Stepping Down as National Security Adviser

Gen. James Jones, the national security adviser, is resigning and will be replaced by Thomas Donilon, the New York Times reports.

"General Jones's departure had been long rumored, and he had previously indicated to his staff that he intended to leave by the end of the year. But the schedule was accelerated, and in recent weeks White House staff had been increasingly critical of General Jones for statements that he apparently made to Bob Woodward, the author of Obama's Wars, an account of the internal decision making on policy Afghanistan and Pakistan."
