Fallon falls on his sword

Admiral William "Fox" Fallon, Commander of US Central Command, has just resigned.
Adm. William Fallon, the top U.S. military commander for the Middle East, has resigned, citing a magazine article which suggested he was at odds with President Bush's policy toward Iran.
US Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates says nothing will change.
When asked if today's announcement might be interpreted as a move closer toward military action against Iran, Gates said, "that's ridiculous, just ridiculous. ... The notion that this portends anything in change of Iran policy is, to quote myself, ridiculous."
Watch the Bush rhetoric very, very closely.
