Asked about Adm. William Fallon’s resignation today as Centcom commander, Brookings analyst Michael O’Hanlon initially replied, “I can’t clearly see what the reason would be for why he resigned.” O’Hanlon then, however, put forth the possibility that the “success” his good buddy Gen. David Petraeus has had in Iraq may have “overshadow[ed]” Fallon’s “ability to be effective in the job.”
