Sadly, we probably lack the stones to hang the bastards.

You folks are entirely too negative. Just think of the bright side. Obviously, they're all enjoying the creature comforts of imprisonment right now. Just think of the all night interrogations and sleep deprivation, the joys of sensory deprivation, withholding of food and all the other little things that their little traitor exercise will provide. I wonder who is going to crack an spill the beans first. Is it going to be Ahmad? Perhaps Sahid? No, I bet it's going to be Hosni. Just think and then they can tell us who their contact is and then we can go get them! Yippee! Our interrogators just received a huge present in time for the holidays! Edited to add: I had to include this.

I wonder what is going to happen next after the camera goes away. Oh, the imagination runs wild!

Unfortunately that's what happens when you have to hurriedly recruit indigenous peoples. In my world they would all be summarily shot & shoveled.

Cripes!! I'm glad they got that list!! It'll save some of our guys lives... On another note, I wouldn't be too surprised, if we have a pretty good handle on the situation by MAY or so... I hear 3000 82nd Airborne [s]soldi[/s] troops are going in... Hope Free ain't one of 'em.

Exactly, it happens everytime you use indigienous forces. It happened to the Germans in WWII, the French and us in Indochina etc....

… "We were badly infiltrated," said the official…

I can only assume that all the old Vietnam vets in the military have since retired. It’s inexcusable for anyone to be surprised by this!! [pissed]

I assure you, the only people surprised by this are the media fucktards.

I thought I remember reading when those two soldiers were ambushed and it was thought that their throats were cut, that someone in the U.S. command said that "Obviously, some of the police we've trained were in on this" or maybe it was another ambush. If I were the U.S. authorities, I'd tell recruits in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that if they're caught conspiring with insurgents, it's STRAIGHT TO THE FIRING SQUAD. Do not pass go, do not collect 200 dinars.

Fucking idiots. I mean, when the Americans decided to de-Baathify Iraqi bureacracies and authorities after we conquered Iraq, the newspapers and critics started howling what a blunder that was. The decision to purge the new government of Baathists was regarded as a TERRIBLE BLUNDER by the conventional wisdom of the media up till now.A symptom of the Bush team's incompetence and lack of planning for post-war Iraq. Blunder? We did the same fucking thing in Nazi Germany, why would this be any different? But the American authorities conceded to the idiots on the newspaper editorial boards and started re-hiring the same motherfuckers we were fighting a few months earlier. Now we're shocked some of them are still playing for the other team? WAKE THE FUCK UP! Take your cues from history, not the New York Times!
