The Iraq war has a new name.

Currently known as "Operation Iraqi Freedom," the Obama administration has now decided to call it "Operation New Dawn."

U.S. General David Petraeus requested the name change.

The Pentagon says the new name sends a signal to U.S. troops that they are fighting a new mission.
