Mission Accomplished 

Be it noted that the government Iraq has officially assumed control of one of its eighteen provinces. Specifically, the British military has handed over the keys to Muthanna province, which is roughly the size of West Virginia but has about a fourth of the population (20,000 square miles; 550,000 people).

Be it also noted that Iraqi PM Nouri al-Maliki tried to commemorate the event with a speech (to whom is unclear, since the public was excluded), but had to give up when the public address system became useless due to a power failure.
