US Admiral: Different action needed in Iraq

Stabilizing Iraq will require "new and different actions" to improve security and promote political reconciliation, the Navy admiral poised to lead American forces in the Middle East said Tuesday. Adm. William Fallon, at his confirmation hearing, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he sees an urgent need to rescue the situation in Iraq. "I believe the situation in Iraq can be turned around, but time is short," he said.
