U.S. Formally Transfers Sovereignty to Iraqi GovernmentI guess we get to see what Iraqi sovereignty means to the Bush administration.
BAGHDAD, June 28 - Sovereignty was formally handed to an Iraqi interim government at a low-key ceremony in Baghdad on Monday morning, two days earlier than expected.
Reuters correspondent Alistair Lyon, who was at the ceremony, said it was attended by Paul Bremer, the outgoing U.S. governor of Iraq, and top Iraqi government officials.
But why did they take this action early you might ask as I did?
"[T]o try to thwart guerrilla attacks, officials said."
A real indicator of the Bush administration's success in bringing peace and stability to Iraq
