Esquire claims scalp

Admiral William Fallon – the top US military commander in the Middle East – resigned yesterday because of an article in Esquire that portrayed him as going against the policies of President George W. Bush. It said:

‘How does Fallon get away with so brazenly challenging his commander in chief?

‘The answer is that he might not get away with it for much longer. President Bush is not accustomed to a subordinate who speaks his mind as freely as Fallon does, and the president may have had enough.’
