Nine months after the end of Saddam Hussein's regime and his feared intelligence force, Iraq is to get a secret police force again - courtesy of
The Bush Administration will fund the agency in its latest bid to root out the Baathist loyalists behind the insurgency in parts of Iraq. The force
will cost up to $US3 billion ($A4 billion) over the next three years.
Its ranks will comprise Iraqi exile groups, Kurdish and Shiite forces - and former agents who are now working for the Americans. CIA officers in
Baghdad will play a leading role in directing their operations.
A former US intelligence officer said: "If successfully set up, the group would work in tandem with American forces but would have its own structure
and relative independence. It could be expected to be fairly ruthless in dealing with the remnants of Saddam."
Anyone else totally disgusted by that last admission? "Remnants of Saddam" my arse! How about a group comprised of mercenary agents as the
extentison of the US Occupation authority who are not obligated by US conventions & can inflict any degree of torture they see fit?Bad enough growing
up under a dictator who tortured children. Now, your liberators will employ the same techniques by proxy.
Soon all the killing over there will be done by iraqis again..just like when saddam was in power...so instead of saddam killing his own people that
are of different political views..it will be the new administration killing its own people that have different political views...hmmm seems a little
funny to me..
