Rounding up the usual suspects?

Interesting piece from a few days ago in the Washington Post. It looks like part of the strategy may involve what amounts to racial profiling of the population. Lockup anybody that might be a terrorist and hope it works out.

The article also describes the level of paranoia that has to be used when dealing with locals. Even the food has to be brought in from another country. Obviously the insurgents have managed to make the occupation much more expensive than otherwise then would have been. It's not just the increased American footprint on the ground.
