(CNN) - Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan, will meet with Defense Secretary Robert Gates Wednesday morning at the Pentagon before meeting with President Barack Obama, Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor said.
After meeting with Gates, McChrystal will meet with Obama in the Oval Office, Vietor said.
Then they will join a larger group of senior administration aides in a meeting about Afghanistan and Pakistan that is scheduled to begin at 11:35 a.m. ET.
The general's job is in jeopardy over disparaging comments from his staff about President Barack Obama's national security team.
The White House has asked the Pentagon to make list of possible replacements for Gen. Stanley McChrystal because President Barack Obama wants to be ready if he decides to fire the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, a senior administration official told CNN Wednesday.
