More news

It's been a busy week in Iraq.  Not because the US has been chasing down insurgents, but because so many bases are being handed over to the Iraqi Army, it's almost difficult to keep track of them.  Whearas just two years ago, Army helicopters were burning thousands of blade hours taking troops to the battle, now they're scurrying back and forth just to accomodate bases that seem to be closing every day.

Just this past week, we've seen the Green Zone turned over to Iraqi control, as well as bases on the outskirts of Fallujuah, once the heart of the Iraqi insurgency, as well as in Baquabah just yesterday.  (Baquabah was made infamous for being the city in which insurgent leader Al-Zarqawi was killed in 2006).
