Centcom commander Admiral William Fallon has resigned. This is why you should care:

a recent Esquire article…stated that the admiral could be “relieved of his command before his time is up next spring,” in favor of a commander more amenable to war with Iran.

UPDATE: Weirdly, couldn’t find the piece that supposedly prompted the resignation online right now, but here’s the Google cache of page 1 and page 2 — I can’t find the rest.

UPDATE: Page 3 and page 4. (Thanks, J.J.!)

UPDATE THE THIRD: This link seems to work — for me, at least. May have been a browser issue. (And thanks, Michael.)

YET MORE: From Think Progress, including a link to a compilation of Fallon’s statements.

CURIOUSER: Fallon “rejects” the article, the article’s author wonders why.
