Wolfgang Schneiderhan will no longer be Germany’s army chief.

Germany’s top soldier, army chief Wolfgang Schneiderhan, has resigned over accusations of a cover-up after officials withheld information about a NATO airstrike that killed dozens of civilians in Afghanistan.

Wolfgang Schneiderhan’s move followed reports that key information about the 4 September action was withheld, the defence minister said.

The German general responsible for the cover-up of the fuel truck incident quits. Off with his head.

The American general responsible for the cover-up of the Pat Tillman killing is now top dog in the “Af-Pak” disaster. Off with somebody’s head? Dream on.
