Iraqi’s Assuming Control, and Linkfest

Bet you won't find this one in the MSM (from Defense Link)

The Iraqi government is slated to assume control of its soldiers, sailors and airmen sometime next month, a senior U.S. military officer told reporters in Baghdad today.

The Iraqi Ministry of Defense, through its joint headquarters in Baghdad, will assume operational control of the Iraqi army, as well as the country’s air force and navy, in early September, Army Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell, spokesman for Multinational Force Iraq, said at a news briefing.

“This is a significant step in the Iraqi path to self-reliance and security,” Caldwell said. “What this means is that the Iraqi Ministry of Defense is prepared to begin assuming direct operational control over Iraq’s armed forces.”

You mean to tell me that the Iraqi's have made significant improvement, and that the Bush admin's plan to cede control has been working? Wow. I never would have know that reading the regular news sites.

I'm sure this will be another occasion for Democrats such as John Murtha to call for "redeployment" to Japan. Of course, you just know that as "the Iraqi's stand up our troops can stand down" and leave Iraq will be spun as a failure by the President.
