Shhhh… Iraqis Take Over Operations in Maysan Province

Shhhh… Don’t let anyone know, but in Iraq Multi-National Forces just transitioned power to the Iraqi forces in another province on Thursday.

It is interesting… That this happened the same day that democratic leader Harry Reid said, “The war is lost.”

Do you suppose Harry Reid was aware of this before he made his shameful statements yesterday to the liberal media?
And, wouldn’t it be nice if the media reported the progress in Iraq once in a while?

The above diagram from the Department of Defense shows the progress made in Iraq in just the last year.

So, why is it that this is not making any headlines today?
