The Sweep.

The Iraqi military is working to clean out Baghdad.

This is a good thing but the overall situation troubles me in one respect. It has to do with the Iraqi police force. The Iraqi army is much improved and while it is not as trusted as the US and other coalition forces it is much much better. Word has it that the Iraqi Police is terrible. We hear stories about bad guys in Iraqi police uniforms are causing mayhem.

Hmmm, I am skeptical of that. Of the claim they are bad guys in bogus uniforms. The Coalition needs to do to the police what we have done with the Army. Our approach should shift resources from army building and training to police force building and training.
