Live from FUBAR, Iraq
So, you ask, aside from the fact that we're sending real, live, brownshirt wearinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Swastika sportinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, goose-steppinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ friggin' Nazis over to Iraq to bring some American Ã¢â‚¬Å“valuesÃ¢â‚¬Â to the little brown heathens, what else is going on war-wise?
Well, This report from the treasonous scum at the LA Times is also worthy of your attention:
Brutality and corruption are rampant in Iraq's police force, with abuses including the rape of female prisoners, the release of terrorism suspects in exchange for bribes, assassinations of police officers and participation in insurgent bombings, according to confidential Iraqi government documents detailing more than 400 police corruption investigations.
A recent assessment by State Department police training contractors echoes the investigative documents, concluding that strong paramilitary and insurgent influences within the force and endemic corruption have undermined public confidence in the government.
Officers also have beaten prisoners to death, been involved in kidnapping rings, sold thousands of stolen and forged Iraqi passports and passed along vital information to insurgents, the Iraqi documents allege.As they stand up, we'll stand Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ whatever. And hey, who am I to suggest the course we're staying on may not be so hot. After all, everyone knows that the EM-ES-EM only reports out the bad stories.
