An American reporter sent me this: "so you didnt hear this from me, because it was off the record, but general fallon, the recently fired head of centcom, told me at a conference this past weekend that he had not been impressed with general sleiman and that he didnt have the right 'vision' for lebanon, but that he would have preferred elias murr for the job of president but unfortunately murr was a greek orthodox so he couldnt be president. on a different subject, fallon also praised ethiopian leader meles, who is a really brutal dictator but who invaded somalia on our behalf. he said meles was trying to do the right thing and that his army chief was a really good guy too"
