A senior U.S. military official in Afghanistan tells The Associated Press that Gen. Stanley McChrystal doesn't know whether he'll keep his job when he appears at the White House on Wednesday.

The official says the general has been given no indication that he'll be fired -- but no assurance he won't be.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to describe internal discussions between Washington and the general's office in Kabul.

McChrystal has apologized for a Rolling Stone magazine profile this week in which aides mock other administration officials. Obama summoned the general to Washington to explain the remarks.
