    What is it with the human pyramids? First naked and tortured, now in uniforms – What’s next, clown suits?

    I find the pyramide pic telling. The poses, the setting. Could as well be a college football team, or their cheerleaders (I do understand the physical fitness part of the exercise). I wonder what the guy on top yells. ‘Boo-yah!’ or maybe ‘Yee-hah!’?!
    I doubt the instructor’s would have been overly happy with a hearty ‘Allahu Akbar!’

    Page 5, quoting Maj. Gen. William Caldwell:
    “Since the fall of Saddam (Hussein), local governance has taken on a whole new meaning here in Iraq. Iraqis are clearly focused on improving their quality of life and working toward a brighter future.”
    These things are becoming a little more Soviet with each new issue.

    I just keep going back to this.
    Page 9, first brief:
    “Iraqi police and Coalition forces apprehended three suspected insurgents and seized a sizable cache Oct. 2 in a combined operation south of Baqubah…The cache consisted of one AK-47 rifle, five AK-47 magazines, two hand grenades, bomb making materials, anti-Iraqi propaganda and binoculars.”
    A sizable cache of one rifle. Is this even supposed to appear credible, or is it all pro forma at this point?
