Pace is out

Marine Corp General Peter Pace will be replaced as the head of the Joint Chiefs. On the surface at least, Pace was a Rumsfeld yes-man, as are the current leaders in Iraq, Petraeus and Odierno.
Gates seems to be moving deliberately to replace Rumsfeld's crew, it will be interesting to see if Petraeus will follow Pace out the door.
Supposedly, Pace will be replaced by a Navy man, Adm. Mullen. In what may be more than a coincidence, Gen. Abizaid was replaced as head of CENTCOM by Adm. Fallon back in March.
