U.S. troops and Shiite militiamen share Iraq base

“The 450 U.S. troops who are settling into their new outpost at Iraq’s Taqaddum Air Base are sharing the facility with some Shiite militiamen — but only a few. Not long ago, Taqaddum was home to a large contingent of Shiite militia fighters, some of them likely linked to groups that were targeting U.S. troops in combat operations a decade ago.”
