NEW YORK (AP) - A memoir by retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal has been delayed pending security clearance from the U.S. Department of Defense.

Portfolio announced Wednesday that McChrystal's "My Share of the Task" is still being reviewed by the Pentagon.

McChrystal is the former commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

The book was supposed to come out Nov. 12. No new date has been set. Portfolio is an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).

Another Penguin imprint, Dutton, released a best-selling memoir this fall of the Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Defense officials have criticized Penguin and author Mark Bissonnette for not clearing the book with them but have yet to take legal action.

Bissonnette retired from the SEALs over the summer. He wrote the book under the pseudonym Mark Owen.
