Iraq Handover Completed

Iraqi citizens follow the transfer of authority ceremony on television in Baghdad. The United States handed power to a caretaker Iraqi government in a surprise move, ending its 14-month occupation of the country two days early apparently to thwart militants after a spate of attacks.(AFP/Essan al-Sudani)

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.

     L. Paul Bremer, ex-administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority

Update: Michael King has a photo essay on President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair finding out the news - It's a must see!

I think we may have planned all along to hand over early. If say the underground there had plans to preform a terrorist act on the 30th, their plans would be foiled. It makes sense.
