Here’s some interesting strategery: Bright and early and two days ahead of schedule, Paul Bremer on behalf of the US has officially handed off power to the new Iraqi interim government.
From his statement:
“As recognized in U.N. Security Council resolution 1546, the Coalition Provisional Authority will cease to exist on June 28th, at which point the occupation will end and the Iraqi interim government will assume and exercise full sovereign authority on behalf of the Iraqi people. I welcome Iraq’s steps to take its rightful place of equality and honor among the free nations of the world. Sincerely, L. Paul Bremer, ex-administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority.”
Looks good on the administration, being ahead of schedule.
This also tends to cut off the insurgents and opposition. Hey, might as well chuck it in. It’s a done deal now. Heck, they don’t even get to try to bomb the transfer ceremony. I’m sure they were looking forward to it.
Congratulations and best wishes to the people of Iraq.Powered by Sidelines
