ADM William "Fox" Fallon, Commander of US Central Command, has stepped down in the wake of an Esquire magazine article saying he is the only man standing in the way of the Bush administration going to war with Iran.

From Esquire:

If, in the dying light of the Bush administration, we go to war with Iran, it'll all come down to one man. If we do not go to war with Iran, it'll come down to the same man. He is that rarest of creatures in the Bush universe: the good cop on Iran, and a man of strategic brilliance. His name is William Fallon, although all of his friends call him "Fox," which was his fighter-pilot call sign decades ago. (Esquire)
