    US report says "insurgents" infiltrating Iraqi police

    According to this article, from Knight Ridder, the Iraqi police are in a real mess, with many being barely literate, some having criminal records, and apparently "insurgents" are infiltrating their ranks:

    Inspectors from the State Department and Pentagon, who spent five weeks in Iraq this spring evaluating police training, also found that most of the training had been designed and carried out with too little input from Iraqi leaders. The inspectors agreed with recommendations from Iraq's Interior Ministry and international trainers that Iraqis would be better able to screen police recruits than foreign soldiers would. They further suggested that the program should be focused on training police already in the ranks, rather than simply adding more.
