1. Haven't we taught them yet?
that your Generals and other higher ups are never supposed to get near the actual danger?

2. My gods, even the commanders of brigades can't be
protected? If these "insurgents" can go in and "kidnap" Army commanders, then who (besides the Emperor) is safe?

3. Details, front page WP: Top Police Official Is Abducted In Baghdad
BAGHDAD, April 5 -- A senior Iraqi police official was kidnapped on a Baghdad street early Tuesday and at least 11 other Iraqis, including a cleric, a translator and a councilman, were killed or wounded in continuing violence around the country. U.S. military officials reported the deaths of four U.S. service members.

Members of the newly elected National Assembly, meanwhile, were officially notified to reconvene Wednesday to elect a president -- widely expected to be Jalal Talabani, the Kurdish leader -- and two vice presidents. The three would then have two weeks to name a prime minister, most likely Ibrahim Jafari, a Shiite Muslim politician.

Brig. Gen. Jalal Mohamed Saleh, the head of an armored brigade at the Interior Ministry, became the latest Iraqi official captured by insurgents. Saleh was pulled from his car in Baghdad's western district of Mansour, a Defense Ministry spokesman said. One news agency reported that Saleh's bodyguards were also abducted.
