Today, American forces in the city of Kerbala officially handed over security responsibilities to Iraqi army and police units in the city. This makes Kerbala the second Iraqi province that undergoes this transition of power after a similar step was taken in Najaf nearly two months ago.Besides the turnover of Karbala and Najaf, British forces handed over their main base in the city of Basra to the Iraqi military to allow it to take over security duties there.

This is why I get my news from sources other than the New York Times or CBS. Omar at Iraq the Model has the story.
