Ambassador Crocker to step down from Afghan post

By the CNN Wire Staff

Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, will step down this summer after a year on the job due to health reasons, according to State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

A statement by Nuland said Crocker confirmed his plan to the Afghan government and the U.S.-led NATO military mission in the country.

Crocker was named as the U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan on July 25, 2011.

This is not Crocker's first stint in Kabul. After the Taliban were forced out of power, Crocker was given the task in 2002 of reopening the U.S. Embassy in the city, according to his State Department biography.

    I must express my appreciation to you for rescuing me from such a scenario. Right after searching through the world-wide-web and coming across tricks that were not productive, I thought my entire life was done. Living minus the approaches to the problems you've resolved by means of the blog post is a serious case, as well as those that might have adversely damaged my career if I had not noticed your web blog. That training and kindness in maneuvering all areas was very helpful. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't come across such a subject like this. I can also at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this high quality and sensible guide. I won't hesitate to endorse the sites to any individual who desires guide on this subject matter.
