Greg Mortensen will retire from Central Asia Institute in January, an announcement that critics are calling 4 years too late; they also wonder why Mortensen will be used as a consultant.
"'Three Cups of Tea' author Greg Mortenson, who has spent four years weathering accusations that his best-selling book contained fabrications and that he mismanaged the charity he co-founded, will retire in January, Central Asia Institute officials said Thursday.
"The announcement comes as the Bozeman, Montana-based charity works to turn around five years of declining donations and refocus its mission from building schools in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. Mortenson co-founded the nonprofit organization in 1996."--Matt Volz, the Associated Press
