Fallon stepped down over Iraq, not Iran

A second wave of examination finds that Adm. Fallon stepped down over disagreements on Iraq, not Iran. (Ignatius, AP, Kaplan) The premise is that Fallon disagreed with Petraeus' on troop levels like the recent decision to extend "the surge."

(Officially, Fallon was Petraeus' commander, but Bush listening to Petraeus' around Fallon isn't flattering for either Fallon or the administration.)


  • It may not be flattering to Petraeus either. But 'the surge is working' that's the main thing.

  • Yeah. If Petraeus can string it along until he leaves, he has a very lucrative post-Iraq career.

  • “The right wing zealots have never given up on an illegal and preemptive strike on Iran”

    See video: we need to get the word out as much as we can, stop war with Iran

    tell everyone not to participate in an illegal act:
    The uniform code makes it abundantly clear that it must be the Lawful orders of a superior officer. In fact it says, ‘Members of the military have an obligation to disobey unlawful orders.’ This principle was considered so important that we, the government of the United States, proposed that it be internationally applied in the Nuremberg trials.” - Senator Inouye, a decorated World War II veteran and hero
