ABSTRACT
The article comments on the dual roles of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) in the U.S. The author observes that new JCS Chairman, Admiral Mike Mullen has assumed office amid suspicions that the two prior chairmen were too compliant towards President George W. Bush's administration. The author feels it is time to separate the dual roles of the JCS from responsibilities as service chiefs and put the chairman officially in the operational chain of command.
