U.S. role in Iraq security shifting
U.S. military expects to complete the handover of responsibility to nearly all of Iraq's army by the end of the year, meaning Iraq's military will rely on U.S. troops primarily for logistical support and for providing airstrikes and heavy artillery. The main fighting will be conducted by Iraqis.

On Friday 2/10 my producer Susan resumed inviting Zachry Construction and Councilwoman Elena Guajardo to be my guests on KTSA. Each had previously declined, citing a desire to avoid placing additional strain on the family of fired Zachry employee George "Tripp" Dickerson in the immediate aftermath of his suicide. He took his life after being fired for using a company computer to send a personal email to the councilwoman, who says she informed Zachry of Mr. Dickerson's personal use of company email. Many people are interested in hearing the company's and the councilwoman's views on the various issues raised.
