The Bush administration has anchored its plans for troop withdrawals from Iraq on the promise of increasingly capable indigenous security units: the army, the police, border patrols and a facilities-protection service, currently totaling 227,000, although they are trained to vastly different levels of proficiency.
The new Iraqi counterterrorism unit is 70 percent Shiite, 20 percent Sunni and 10 percent Kurdish. About 65 percent have military experience, and American advisers have to take into account how Saddam Hussein used his military to quash political opponents, and how some members of today's new Iraqi military and police forces have been discovered committing abuses, even atrocities.
