March 21, 2003 - Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Richard Myers, pauses before replying to a question posed to him about the difficulties that Turkey has posed by delaying overflights of coalition aircraft over their country.  The General replied, ''Well, we've said a couple of times from up here that the -- that we have forces in the north now. General Franks intends to put more forces into the north. It would be helpful if Turkey would go along and make the arrangements that the parliament approved, and that is for overflights. So we're still hoping for that, but we're not counting on that, and we have other ways of inserting those forces.''
