Today's Cartoon: Baghdad Police Unit Linked To Sectarian Violence

Well, so much for those reports which claim that Iraqi gunmen are "disguising" themselves as police officers in order to kidnap civilians. As it turns out, those claims may not be entirely accurate...

You see, the fact an entire police unit had to be removed from Baghdad over concerns of its involvement in the ongoing (and increasing) sectarian violence, indicates to me that it may not be the gunmen who are "impersonating" the police officers, but rather the other way around.

It seems to me that the only "disguise" that the Sunni and Shiite militias are wearing is the one that was given to them by the Iraqi government, while under pressure from the United States to reassemble it's shattered police force (that the U.S. had disbanded) as quickly as possible, even if it meant that all the pieces didn't fit together.
