Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV quote
Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV, Multi-National Force-Iraq spokesman, in a Dec. 27 interview citing a raid and hostage rescue by Iraqi police and British forces two days earlier on a rogue Iraqi police unit that had been infiltrated by extremists in Basra.

While infiltration of some [Iraqi] units persists, this operation demonstrates that the government of Iraq takes it seriously and understands and is initiating steps to mitigate this infiltration within the police units.
