Iraq to take control of its armed forces
On a related issue, Iraq is taking a big step toward independence today when its prime minister gains direct control of the military. The U.S. military is calling it a "huge, significant event." The United States formally handed over control of Iraq's new military to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's government, and is hailing it as a "gigantic" milestone toward the eventual withdrawal of about 150,000 U.S.-led foreign troops in Iraq. Now that is progress!
