"U.S. Signs Over Last Military Base In Iraq"

U.S. and Iraqi officials signed paperwork handing over Camp Adder, the last American military base in Iraq. The sign over marks one of the final acts in the U.S. departure from Iraq. Four-thousand remaining American soldiers are expected to leave before December 31. The U.S. also handed over Ali Mussa Daqduq — its last detainee, suspected of being responsible for killing five U.S. military personnel — to Iraqi authorities after a failed attempt to negotiate his extradition to the U.S.
