A Pentagon inquiry into a Rolling Stone magazine profile of Gen. Stanley McChrystal that led to his dismissal as the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan has cleared him of wrongdoing.

The probe’s results released Monday also called into question the accuracy of the magazine’s report last June, which quoted anonymously people around McChrystal making disparaging remarks about members of President Barack Obama’s national security team, including Vice President Joe Biden.

The office of the Defense Department inspector general said it reviewed an unpublished Army investigation of the case, and interviewed numerous eyewitnesses. It concluded that the evidence was insufficient to substantiate a violation of any applicable legal or ethics standard by McChrystal or any of his staff.

The Pentagon inquiry also concluded that not all of the events at issue happened as reported in the article.

“In some instances, we found no witnesses who acknowledged making or hearing the comments as reported,” the Pentagon report said. “In other instances, we confirmed that the general substance of an incident at issue occurred, but not in the exact context described in the article.”

Attempts by The AP to get comment from Rolling Stone weren’t immediately successful.

After the Rolling Stone article was published, McChrystal was summoned to the White House and dismissed. He was replaced by Gen. David Petraeus.

A 25-room Long Island mansion that some believe inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald’s portrayal of lavish lifestyles in his Jazz Age classic “The Great Gatsby” is being razed, the latest in a long cadence of estates disappearing from what’s known as the Gold Coast.

Known as “Land’s End” and sitting on a 13-acre lot on Long Island Sound, the 24,000-square foot house is being torn down to accommodate five $10 million custom homes.

“It’s really a sad thing. The Gold Coast social country life is part of Long Island’s legacy, a reminder of a grand and romantic era,” said Alexandra Wolfe, director of preservation services for the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities.

“It’s such a shame that people find it difficult to honor that, to preserve that.”

Real estate broker Paul Mateyunas estimates that through the end of World War II, the region once boasted about 1,400 estates inhabited by a who’s who of the nation’s financial titans. Now, only about 400 remain.
