US will hand Iraqis control of Karbala

Who thought the US couldn't be magnanimous? Imagine it. We're gonna give a sovereign nation control of part of its own country.

Wow. I'm amazed.
U.S. forces will turn over security to Iraqi authorities in the southern Shiite province of Karbala on Monday, the American commander for the area said, despite fighting between rival militia factions that has killed dozens.

Karbala will become only the eighth of Iraq's 18 provinces to revert to Iraqi control, despite President Bush's prediction in January that the Iraqi government would have responsibility for security in all of the provinces by November.
