Over at Powerline . . .

A press statement we wrote to mark the 4th Iraqi Army Division's assumption of responsibility from the 101st Airborne on Tuesday was picked up by one of my favorite web logs, PowerLine.

I was originally supposed to go to Tikrit to attend the ceremony, but unfortunately was dropped from the manifest. Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait to see Saddam's hometown when it is safe enough for tourism.

The PowerLine guys also included a letter from Major General McCoy, that captures some of the frustration a lot of people here feel about the persistent negativity of the press coverage emanating from Iraq. (Not that everything is perfect, but neither is everything borderline apocalyptic as some of the coverage almost seems to imply).
