Sooner or later it had to be done, I suppose. Yesterday the Coalition Provisional Authority turned over control of Iraq to the new Iraqi government, in a small cerimony with very little press coverage, at least until after it was over. The fact that is was done ahead of schedule was not much of a suprise, and didn’t seem change much of anything. I did notice that the Iraqi army here was caught completely unaware. Not like they are paying much attention to what goes on around them. I should give them some credit though, at least they are making an effort to stablize this country.
