BAGHDAD — The Iraqi Training and Doctrine Command officially opened in a ceremony at the Cultural Center Compound in Baghdad Tuesday.

The ITDC now has the ability and sufficient resources to oversee all Iraqi national defense related education and military doctrine development.

This is an important milestone as Iraq progresses toward its goal of being fully operable by July 2007, said Gen. Babakir Badir Khan Zebari, Iraqi Joint Forces commander.

“A modern and developed Doctrine coordinated with our national vision and interests helps create a culture for national security,” he said.
