American Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen honored visiting IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi Thursday night with the military's highest award for his fight against terror. Lt. General Ashkenazi is on a week-long visit to the United States, where he spoke with military and political leaders about the Iranian threat and Tehran's ties with Hizbullah.

He spoke Thursday night with National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley. In previous meetings, he said that Muslim terrorists in the Middle East are trying to create a "new order in the Middle East" to change secular Arab governments.
