Sovereignty, Or Something Like It 

Yahoo! News - U.S. Transfers Sovereignty to Iraqi Govt.
The U.S.-led coalition transferred sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government Monday, speeding up the move by two days in an apparent bid to surprise insurgents who may have tried to sabotage the step toward self rule.

Legal documents turning over sovereignty were handed by U.S. governor L. Paul Bremer to interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi in a ceremony in the heavily guarded Green Zone.
Well, this was a smooth move.

And there were those who said it would never happen. Oh, wait, no there weren't. That's a strawman. Never mind. Good thing that in the rush to get this done, Bush was able to squeak in that war crimes exemption. Whew!
