Civilians to Iraq?
Inside the Beltway - The Washington Times: Inside the Beltway: " Inside the Beltway has learned that the Defense Intelligence Agency, given 'extraordinary demands placed upon agency personnel' in fighting the U.S.-led war on terrorism, is implementing a 'mandatory deployment policy' that could soon deploy DIA civilian employees to Iraq."
Weren't we supposed to have a military that could handle two regional conflicts at once?
One DIA civilian employee we spoke to yesterday reacted: "Seems like they are running out of military personnel ... to go to Iraq. When the United Nations and relief agencies are pulling civilians out of Iraq, these guys are prepared to send civilians with no military training over there. Amazing."
