Things continue to go really well in Iraq.

You know those recurring allegations that death squads are operating out of the Iraqi police and security forces? The ones that the Iraqi government always denies?

Senior Iraqi officials Sunday confirmed for the first time that death squads composed of government employees had operated illegally from inside two government ministries.

"The deaths squads that we have captured are in the defense and interior ministries," Minister of Interior Bayan Jabr said during a joint news conference with the Minister of Defense. "There are people who have infiltrated the army and the interior."
