Iraqis come in many shapes and sizes. We have the standard brown eyed, black haired sterotypical Arabs; red haired, brown eyed circassians; brown haired, blue eyed Kurds, etc. Because of this there is no ability to profile people according to look. This adds to the security issues on post.

If anyone tries to come through the gate without going through proper checks they are challenged. If they don't stop deadly force WILL be used. This was not the case the other evening. This local Iraqi came walking through the gate and did not respond to the challenges. He walked through and was loose on post until daylight when one of our country boys with special training for this type of excercise was called upon to capture him.

The intruder was captured and turned over to the Iraqi authorities. He was not mistreated nor was he tortured in any way. In fact, we went a long way to try and not make asses of ourselves or make hay of the situation. All is well.

Wow, they've got Democrats way over in Iraq? Er, I mean Underpants? Very funny!

Btw, it sounds like you had a good R&R visit this side of the pond. We'll be praying for you back in the sandbox. As always, thanks for your service!
