We're Training The Enemy

Another sign of the increasingly chaotic context of the war in Iraq: the instigators of one of the bloodiest and most daring attacks on American troops may hold senior positions in the U.S.-trained Iraqi National Army:

At least one of the Iraqi generals under suspicion for involvement or having advance word of the attack is said to be an intelligence officer, according to U.S. officials. If that's proven to be the case, the involvement of Iraqi generals in an attack on American forces raises questions about the loyalty and trustworthiness of Iraqi military officers at the highest levels.

I fear we are both training and arming one side in a civil war, while also attempting to police it. It's complete insanity as a strategy.
