I have written much about the "Dayton Force", the original US involvement effort in training the terrorists of the Palestinian Authority in military sciences. As Elyakim HaEtzni wrote exactly six years ago in 2007 of Condoleeza Rice:
She sent General Dayton to train terrorists disguised as policemen, and forced us to permit their arming, even though many of those arms and APCs fell into the hands of the Hamas, snipers who were trained after Oslo sniped and killed Jews, and Palestinian bomb disposal experts, trained in the United States used their new skills to operate explosive charges, murdering hundreds.
What training? This:
Substance of Training
New recruits and newly-formed battalions generally undergo basic training at PA facilities in or around Jericho, then travel to JIPTC for 19 weeks of U.S.-sponsored training...[The 19-week basic training course provides instruction in the following skill sets: supply and logistics management, tactical training (to include a range of subjects), rapid reaction, crowd control, civil disorder management, tactical police response in high risk environments, cordons, basic administrative and personnel management/reform, organizational operations and planning, agency command and management, first line supervision, unarmed defensive tactics, basic patrol operations, high risk arrest, human rights, communications, basic medical, standard operating procedures, ethics/human rights, command and control, discipline, law enforcement intelligence gathering, physical fitness, border security, and security at crossing points. U.S. Department of State Scope of Work document, op. cit.] An added benefit of training in Jordan is that trainees are permitted to use firearms (which are supplied by Jordan during the training, Specialized courses also are offered at JIPTC and in the West Bank, usually immediately before or after basic training. Some of these courses train entire platoons in a particular set of skills, while others are meant to diffuse specialized knowledge throughout the battalion.
In November last year, I wrote on the new commander of the USCC and observed
Too many Pal. policemen have used their weapons to kill Jews.
Will Israel, when it eventually captures the terrorist (is he the same one from the Hebron incident?), ask the US if they trained him? Or maybe they already know that?
Or maybe it was Canada responsible?
Or maybe England?
Will the families of the Hebron and Psagot victims sue?
