Fallon Out

Admiral William Fallon, sometimes said to be standing between George W. Bush and the "bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran" policy, is resigning amidst a storm of controversy surrounding suggestions that he's been standing between Bush and war with Iran. More insta-analysis here at The Washington Independent. Basically, there seems to be a mobius-strip like quality where it's awkward for people to think Fallon is dissenting from the administration's Iran policy, so he's on his way out, though the administration and Fallon both deny that there is any such dissent or that any Iran policy changes are in the works. Got that?
