Another Iraqi Province Turned Over to Iraqi Control

Security for the Iraqi Province of Najaf has now been turned over to Iraqi forces. Najaf is now the third Iraqi province whose security is now in the hands of the Iraqis (joining the Provinces of Muthanna and Dhi Qar).

Iraq is physically about the same size as California. If you subtract the geographical areas of the three provinces now turned over and the Province of Basra which is scheduled to be handed over shortly - then the area our military has to control now shrinks to about the size of the the state of New Mexico.
