ABC's Martha Raddatz brought us the day's only Iraq story, an Exclusive profile of the new head of Central Command as he inspected the troops. Admiral William Fallon's leadership is focused on the short and medium term: his officers "have to show results and fast." If any of his subordinates has a plan to improve life in Iraq over the long term he tells them to forget it. "Time is of the essence. It is now, now, now," Fallon told Raddatz. Fallon figures that without a dramatic improvement by year's end, Congress will bring US troops home before any long term benefits can kick in.
