Coalition forces handed over control of Iraq's armed forces command to the government on Thursday, a move US officials have hailed as a crucial milestone on the country's difficult road to independence. "From today forward, the Iraqi military responsibilities will be increasingly conceived and led by Iraqis," said the top US commander in Iraq, Gen. George Casey, at a ceremony to mark the event.
