In what appears to be a military shakeup surrounding Iraq, President Bush has replaced both the top US general in the Middle East and the top general in Iraq, ABC NEWS is reporting on air. Admiral William J. Fallon will replace Gen. John Abizaid, US commander in the Middle East, who announced his retirement in December and was expected to leave the post in March. Abizaid was a critic of Bush's efforts to add more troops to Iraq, but the circumstances of his early departure are unclear. .... David Petraeus will replace General George Casey, commander of US forces in Iraq.

This is yet another top General let go by Obama & company: First it was Gen. David McKiernan in 2009 -- the first time a war time commander had been removed since the Truman era. Now this latest one is number 5 of top leaders.
It is almost as if you would think that if the top Brass does not agree with Obama they end up fired or have their name dragged through the mud.
