"Odierno takes charge in Iraq; Succeeds Petraeus, hopes to maintain security progress" by Thom Shanker and Stephen Farrell, New York Times News Service | September 17, 2008
CAMP VICTORY, Iraq - In an ornate palace built by the deposed dictator Saddam Hussein, the US military command of the war in Iraq changed hands yesterday.
Don't think the location wasn't lost on Iraqis!!!
In his first, brief comments as commander of the multinational forces in Iraq, Odierno said, "We must realize that these gains are fragile and reversible, and our work here is far from done."
In his comments at the ceremony, Gates cautioned that "our enemies are down but not out."
You mean, these enemies?
