Numerous Iraqi military and law-enforcement officials brought to the U.S. as part of special intelligence and training programs have run away and are seeking asylum in this country or disappeared altogether, The Washington Times has learned.

Intelligence officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity, say nearly a dozen Iraqis fled military training facilities in the U.S., including a brigadier general who went to Canada with his family earlier this year.

"The trainees are given access to highly sensitive information intended to help in the stabilization of Iraq. Proper screening for entry into the program and strict controls during the training are necessary to protect both our national security and our soldiers overseas," said Mr. Smith, who first inquired about missing trainees last year


This is the first I've heard about Iraqi trainees loose in the US. It can't be a good thing to have these guys running around loose over here. That's just asking for trouble, imo.

How were they allowed to go unaccounted for? What is being done to find them and make sure this doesn't happen again?
