Camp Victory, Iraq, Dec 2: The U.S. military says it has handed over Camp Victory, a sprawling base at the edge of Baghdad that used to be the headquarters for the U.S. military, to the Iraqi government.

U.S. military spokesman Col. Barry Johnson says Victory Base Complex—as it's formally called by the U.S. military—was formally signed over on Friday morning and is now under the “full authority” of the Iraqi government.

Camp Victory has served as the headquarters for the U.S. military and home to the military's commanding general.

Some parts of the compound are already being used by the Iraqi military, but the government is still deciding what to do with the prime real estate like the palaces used by the U.S. military.
