Meet the new Iraq; same as the old Iraq. "Freedom" my arse.
"Iraq officials fire thousands of policemen"

Iraqi authorities have fired thousands of police officers and taken over the recruiting of new policemen, the Washington Times reported Sunday.

"Most of the screening as far as the staff is up to the Iraqi staff now," said U.S. Army Capt. Kevin Bradley, who trains Iraqi national guardsmen. "Right now, whether or not the person is clean, it depends on the Iraqis."

...The Iraqis have their own methods of recruiting police officers that might fall short of U.S. civil rights standards, but they are proving effective, according to Bradley.
