In what seems like big news to me, and apparently not such a big deal to the MSM, General James Conway announced that the tenth of eighteen provinces reverts to Iraqi security next week. (Anbar is that big, honking province over on the Syrian border!)
Washington...on Wednesday, in a potent symbol of strides made in what was one of the most troublesome corners of Iraq, the U.S. Marine commandant, Gen. James Conway, said that U.S. troops will turn over control of Anbar to the Iraqi security forces sometime next week. Conway suggested that the security situation has improved so much that it is time to shift the Marines’ presence from Iraq to Afghanistan.
Could it be that good news coming out of Iraq would reflect poorly on the judgment of The One and favorably on the judgment of John McCain?
