The United States is secretly training several senior former Iraqi army officers to advise Iraq's nascent postwar military establishment, former Iraqi officers and a politician said on Sunday.
U.S. army spokesman Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt said he had "no information" about such a training program.
The politician, who refused to be named, said six major-generals and 11 other senior officers active in the Iraqi army until last year's U.S.-led invasion to topple Saddam Hussein were being trained, mostly in the United States....
We're assured, however, that these are nice, apolitical Saddam-era officers, not nasty ones.
