Iraqi Police Kickin It Up A Notch

Hold on a second. You mean the Iraqi's are still standing up in a big way? But no one in the media is saying anything (from Defenselink News):

Iraqi police forces now are trained and equipped to almost 100 percent of the level promised by the coalition and are improving in quality and capability every day, the U.S. general in charge of training the police said today.

About 128,000 of the 135,000 planned Iraqi police have been trained and equipped, and the 135,000th policeman is in school now and will graduate in mid-October, U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Joseph Peterson, commander of the civilian police assistance training team, said in a news conference from Iraq. The coalition will meet and probably exceed the planned levels by December, Peterson said.

Now that training and recruiting goals are being met, the coalition is focusing on improving the quality of the police force at an individual level, Peterson said. About 185 police transition teams, including civil policemen and international police liaison officers, are embedded with police stations at all levels, he said.

Cartridge Unit 1 says "What!?"

Yes, CU1, the story says that the Iraqi police force is at 128K of 135K trained.

 "What?!"

Pretty impressive, eh?

By the end of this year, Iraqis will take control of the 12 police academies in the country and will run the academies on their own, Peterson said. Also by the end of the year, the first two professional development classes for police supervisors will begin, he said.

Kickin' it up a notch!
