Disaster written all over it
Would you let the fox guard the henhouse? Apparently the US will -- check out this report that a Falluja Protective Army comprised of "a new Iraqi force led by former Iraqi army officers" will take over patrols of Falluja and that the Marines will pull back. Those are the Iraqi army officers comprised of Ba'athists/Sunnis/Saddamites being sent to guard against insurgency from the Sunni/Saddamite stronghold of Falluja. And this deal was announced on the same day that another 10 Marines were killed. Politically correct warfare is ineffectual warfare -- the President should have ordered Falluja brought to heel before any deals because this will look like surrender.
