Maj. Gen. Joseph F. Fil Jr. quote
Maj. Gen. Joseph F. Fil Jr., commander of Multinational Division Baghdad, June 29.

We are in reconciliation with many of the tribes, both inside and outside of Baghdad. And, it is not a matter of arming militias. In fact, these tribes are already well armed. What we are doing, though, is embarking in a dialogue with them. And, some of them who have previously been fighting us have come to us as we have spoken with them, and they want to fight with us.
