Mission Accomplished

Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft reports that the United States Marines have wrapped up their mission in Iraq.

Shhh… Don’t tell anyone. It may make George W. Bush look good. It may make Republicans look good.

It may shine light on the Democrats’ awful record on national defense.

Here's the buzz from Fox News:
The Marines formally handed over control of Sunni-dominated Anbar, Iraq’s largest province, to the Army during a ceremony at a base in Ramadi — where some of the fiercest fighting of the war took place.

If all goes as planned, the last remaining Marines will be followed out by tens of thousands of soldiers in the coming months. President Obama has ordered all but 50,000 troops out of the country by Aug. 31, 2010, with most to depart after the March 7 parliamentary election.

The remaining troops will leave by the end of 2011 under a U.S.-Iraqi security pact.
Thank you President Bush and thank you Marines.
