"Today is an extremely important day as we continue to progress toward turning over full responsibility to the Iraqi security forces," General Raymond Odierno, top commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, told reporters after a departure ceremony for the last U.S. combat brigade.
This is a day which proves wrong all claims that Iraq was ungovernable, that the people there wanted to kill all of our troops, that democracy cannot succeed, that the military was too infested by terrorists, that no one wanted to fight for the new Iraqi government, et cetera, et cetera. And I'm glad that the doubters were wrong, to eat their humble pie while a new democracy that can sustain and defend itself rises from the Middle East.
