A little comedy from Defense Link

Defense Link reports:

"WASHINGTON, Aug. 15, 2007 – The Iraqi government’s automated biometrics identification system -- used to screen civilian workers, police and soldiers, as well as to catch criminals -- is a “tremendous success,” a U.S. military officer said in Baghdad today. . . Army Lt. Col. John W. Velliquette Jr., who runs the fingerprint and retina scanning center located at the International Zone in Baghdad . . . [says] official identification cards carried by the Iraqi police demonstrate they’ve been vetted through the biometric identification program . . . Iraqi police who are found not to possess a proper biometrics identification card are relieved of their weapons, he said. 'The Iraqi people need to have confidence in their police,' Velliquette pointed out."
