[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ] FALLUJAH - A former general in Saddam Hussein's army will be responsible for security in the Iraqi city of Fallujah under a new deal reached on Thursday. The Fallujah Protective Army will include up to 1,100 Iraqi soldiers and will be led by a former division commander under Saddam. It will move into the hotbed of anti-U.S. insurgency beginning on Friday, U.S. marine Lt.-Col. Brennan Byrne said source CBC news cbc.ca Why didn't the US just hire the insurgents to provide security in the first place? ;) The US has always claimed that they are mainly remnants of Saddam's forces. It looks as if Chalabis and INC campaign of getting rid of all former Baathists is being rejected with a vengeance. I understand that former Baath intelligence officers have been hired to the new Iraqi intelligence service as well..
