Final Battle Underway

American troops entered Baghdad for a second time early this morning. Fox News quotes Major Michael Birmingham, chief public affairs officer for the U.S. 3rd Infantry: “The other day was just an incursion. This is for real.”
American troops reportedly have occupied a major presidential palace and the Iraqi Information Ministry, and Fox News reports that “the main presidential palace” has also been seized. Pentagon officials have confirmed that today’s raid is the kickoff to the much-anticipated final battle for Baghdad.
