Anbar Province handover on Aug 28

I heard it on CNN just now. No updated link yet.

This link will provide some background
Iraq to Take Control in Anbar Province - Political Machine

I would have thought that the Anbar province would have been the last one handed over to the Iraqi police force for 2 reasons.

1. Area of most insurgency

2. H4 is in Anbar (location in Western Iraq where scuds were launched towards Israel during Desert Storm)

re: Anbar Province handover on Aug 28

Anbar used to be a hotbed of AQI activity. Anbar locals used to be very hostile to U.S. and coalition forces. However, from everything that I've read, Anbar is now one of the safer spots. Supposedly, the locals got really tired of AQI and decided we're preferable to the guys who cut off heads and make music videos of such decapitations.

Somebody should fix the title of this thread, unless we've finally decided to hand over Rhode Island.
