Iraq P.D. Blues


This may come as a surprise to no one, but the LAT reports that the Iraqi police is corrupt, brutal, corrupt, infiltrated by the militias, corrupt, infiltrated by insurgents, and corrupt. It says the unit that ran the secret prison where 173 prisoners were found last November, starving, beaten and tortured, still operates. No people under the authority of the sort of police described in this article can be described as free.

(Update: the fake police pretty much suck too.)

Follow-up: we still haven’t been told the name of the little girl who died in the bombing that killed Zarqawi, nearly one month ago.

Gene Weingarten writes on the glory that is concrete.
