The Salvador Option

What's the US government's latest wacky scheme?

Blast from the past: US trained (and in some cases, led) death squads. That's right, teams of highly trained Iraqi operatives who will be carrying out assassinations and kidnappings, trained and then either supervised by or directly led by US Special Forces people. These squads will not only work inside of Iraq, but will cross borders as they feel the need to. Spread the love - and remember, we're the good guys!

I'm too tired to give much commentary right now. Just read, and do with it what you will.
