This just in from Centcom:

July 13, 2006

BAGHDADIraq witnessed a historic event today with the transfer of security responsibility in Muthanna Province from the Multi-National Force - Iraq (MNF-I) to the Provincial Governor and civilian-controlled Iraqi Security Forces. The handover represents a milestone in the successful development of Iraq’s capability to govern and protect itself as a sovereign and democratic nation. Muthanna is the first of Iraq’s 18 provinces to be designated for such a transition.
In other words, the Bush policy in Iraq is working, and is going according to plan.

Do you hear that Murtha?

That was the sound of the wind being taken out of your sails.
