Critical Benchmark Achieved

COIN: Iraqi Police take over in Fallujah

Grim at Blackfive has a post up on another positive improvement in Iraq:

The last battalion of Iraqi soldiers with 2nd Brigade, 1st Iraqi Army Division, withdrew from the Anbar Province city of Fallujah, Sept. 1, leaving the city’s security and stability in the hands of the local police and government.

Brig. Gen. Ali al-Hashemi, the brigade’s commander, said the time had come when Iraqi Police alone could handle law enforcement in the city. (read the complete post here)

While searching google for any major news media that has reported this significant improvement, I have yet to find ONE.
