Management of U.S. Reconstruction Transition

Under the terms of the current U.S.-Iraq Security Agreement, all U.S. military forces are scheduled to depart Iraq by December 31, 2011. This quarter, continued withdrawal of U.S. troops proceeded apace, with the last U.S. combat brigade rolling out in August, signaling the end of Operation Iraqi Freedomand the beginning of Operation New Dawn. Concurrent with U.S. military reductions, the Department of State (DoS) is continuing to expand its presence. Over the next year, DoS will open several key hubs across Iraq and will assume responsibility fromthe Department of Defense (DoD) for police training. Overseeing these changes are General Lloyd Austin, who took command of U.S. Forces-Iraq (USF-I) this quarter, and the new U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, James Jeffrey.
