Newsweek reports on Bernard Kerik's time in Iraq. Apparently he preferred going out on night raids after the "bad guys" with other officials' South African bodyguards to working with the Iraqis. That throws a little light on how he became known as the Terminator of Baghdad, I suppose. No wonder Doug Brand had to beg the MoD Plod for staff and discover the structure of the Iraqi police force from first principles when he got to Baghdad.
Further, Talking Points Memo reports on his mafia connections. You wonder just how wrong it's possible to get it.
