BORDER TRANSITION TEAMS IN IRAQ

As the United States’ presence in Iraq dwindles down, and the shift of Iraqi control that began on 30 June, 2009, continues, US forces are becoming useful in another area of Iraq—the border region. Part of the Security Agreement that was negotiated with the Iraqi government is that Iraqis are taking control and the lead of their country. US forces are pulling out of the cities (part of the surge program) and moving back to their major bases in the country.
