"Does Jim Henley Control The Iraqi Police?"

So this is pretty weird. Jim Henley did a post noting that Iraq doesn’t provide the best circumstances for whoring or making time with the local girls, wondering who, if anyone, American troops were having sex with. He handed the assignment off to Spencer Ackerman, who’s in Iraq at the moment. Coincidentally, Spencer was present for a meeting between an Iraqi police commander and a US army officer during which the Iraqi had the exact same question.

The official answer turns out to be that our troops aren’t having any sex at all, but it doesn’t seem especially plausible that this rule is being met with 100 percent compliance.
