Iraq House Raid? Not Without a Warrant

Associated Press

MAHMOUDIYA, Iraq – U.S. Soldiers preparing for raids study maps, examine photos of wanted men and check their weapons. Starting next month, they’ll have to go see a judge.

U.S. troops are scrambling to learn the ins and outs of an Iraqi legal system with unfamiliar rules and procedures, a cumbersome bureaucracy and a shortage of judges after years of violence.

  1. Dear god! I agree before some 18 yr old kicks the wrong door or shoots a guy with a gun who he does not have a picture for.

  2. That’s going to improve security. Unfortunately, it is one of those costs to “democracy”. Iraq is just going to have to sacrifice a few more bodies for the “rule of law” the way America already has. Downpayment and all that.

    Assuming you don’t go bankrupt before you make all the payments, of course.
