Police Academy Follies 
The New York Times leads:

As chaos swept Iraq after the American invasion in 2003, the Pentagon began its effort to rebuild the Iraqi police with a mere dozen advisers. Overmatched from the start, one was sent to train a 4,000-officer unit to guard power plants and other utilities. A second to advise 500 commanders in Baghdad. Another to organize a border patrol for the entire country

Wow. That's interesting. Because of those twelve advisers in the summer of 2003, seven of them were pulled from my company alone, to work training police in Ramadi.

Glad we were able to make such a contribution.

Our Bravo company's first sergeant is a police officer in civilian life. They were also very much involved in police training and ICDC training by the fall.

I wonder what else the Times is missing?
