Admiral William J. Fallon was the top U.S. commander in the Middle East[1] until his retirement was announced in March 2008.[2]

Jim Miklaszewski, NBC News Chief Pentagon Correspondent, wrote:

Defense Secretary William Gates announced ... that Fallon is stepping down as head of U.S. Central Command ... because he felt the statements attributed to him created a misperception about his goals and those of President Bush.[3]

Fallon told the Washington Post that the Esquire article was "poison pen stuff...disrespectful and ugly." [ibid]
