General Odierno, commander of U.S. forces in Iraq has issued a new general order for military operations in Iraq. Effective January 1, 2010, General Cucolo's classification of pregnancy as a punishable offense for U.S. military personnel and civilians in northern Iraq will be overthrown. The new general order consolidates all the mission procedurals issued by second tier generals in the theater.
