France Takes Charge

Kabul — Canadian Lieutenant-General Rick Hillier relinquished command of NATO's International Security Assistance Force on Monday, handing over responsibilities to French Lt.-Gen. Jean-Louis Py.

The handover marks the start of Eurocorps' first overseas deployment and the end of Canada's largest commitment to Afghanistan yet.

I am sure we all feel more optimistic today for the future of Afghanistan now that France has taken control over NATO forces in Afghanistan.
