Joint Chief Drops in on Israel while Touring Europe?

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, will visit Israel later this week. His trip is part of a European tour.

What's odder than dropping by the Middle East during a tour of Europe? It's his second visit in months. Contrast that with the ten year period where no Chair of the Joint Chiefs went to Israel.

Mullen could join the U.S. Chief of Naval Operations who is currently in Israel on an official visit. That's alot of Naval leadership firepower hanging out with America's best friend in Europe, oops, it's actually the Middle East.
