Round-up of Press Releases 8/17/2006

I would like to remind you that if you do not see much posted here, there is probably much posted over at DoD Daily News-2. Sometimes I forget to transfer it over to here, or I get too tired and fall asleep on the computer. lol. Either way, here are some press releases you will be impressed with, and some NGAUS information.

General: Trust key to Baghdad security. Release date: August 13, 2006.
BAGHDAD — The Coalition commander responsible for operations in the Iraqi capital is optimistic about what he has seen since operations to quell sectarian violence here started.

Legislative Alert: Aug. 11, 2006.
Things to Do! NGAUS AlertsCheck our two new legislative alerts on the NGAUS website http://www.ngaus.org/.

Joint statement by Ambassador Khalizad & Gen. Casey on 4th IAD handover.
Today, in another sign of progress toward a stable and secure Iraq, the Fourth Iraqi Army Division Headquarters officially assumed the lead in its area of responsibility from the 101st Airborne Division. This achievement represents the Division halfway mark of our joint goal of putting all Iraqi Security Forces in the lead in coordinating, planning and conducting security operations in Iraq. We congratulate the Iraqi people and the Government of Iraq on this important milestone.

Please remember, for the longer versions I tend to write them over on the 2nd page first. Don't forget to look over there.

Thank you so very much for all that you for all of us. I am very proud of you, and I want to honor you. The best way I know how is to bring a bigger picture of what is really happening. Have a great day, and stay safe.
