Admiral Fallon’s recent comments about Iran policy:
“None of this is helped by the continuing stories that just keep going around and around and around that any day now there will be another war which is just not where we want to go,” he said.
“Getting Iranian behaviour to change and finding ways to get them to come to their senses and do that is the real objective. Attacking them as a means to get to that spot strikes me as being not the first choice in my book.”
As TPM’s Steve Benen fittingly notes:
I look forward to Rudy Giuliani and his foreign policy advisors explaining why Admiral Fallon is guilty of pre-9/11 thinking. Who knows, maybe we’ll even hear Limbaugh dismiss him as a “phony soldier.”
