"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Embarrassing

The BBC News reports that the Iraqi police forces are recruiting insurgents due to "poor vetting procedures", citing a report released by the U.S. Defense Department:
Many new recruits are illiterate, have criminal records or are physically disabled. "Inducting criminals into the [Iraqi police] is a continual concern," the report says, quoted by AP news agency. "Even more troubling is infiltration by intending terrorists or insurgents. There is sufficient evidence to conclude that such persons indeed are among the ranks of the [police]." The report adds that coalition personnel are ineffective as recruiters, and focus on quantity rather than quality.
It baffles the mind... How much worse could the state of Iraq get?

Thanks to Terrorism News for the tip.
