MISS BAGHDAD


Iraqi Administrator Paul Bremer
leaves Baghdad by helicopter, as
the transfer of sovereignty
to Iraq is completed two
days early.

Meanwhile, the US Military -- whose presence in Iraq has no impact whatsoever on the "full sovereignty" of the Iraqi government -- is launching a new bid to catch Zarqawi. CNN is reporting that there the administration believes that Zarqawi is the "mastermind" behind much of the insurgency, suggesting that if he's captures, then the insurgency will fade.

Tell that to every man and woman in uniform killed since Saddam was caught in his spider-hole.

Anyway, I have no idea how this is going to work out. More than one hundred and thirty thousand American troops will still be on the ground in Baghdad after today's transfer of sovereignty, so I sure hope that our continued reiteration that we are giving Iraq "full sovereignty" wont backfire on us. Let's hope for the best here...

UPDATE: Hehe, I beat Chris Bowers to the Saigon photo by around 8 hours.
