Knight Ridder. U.S. unveils $300 million border security plan for Iraq by Carol Rosenberg
After months of blaming foreign fighters for terror attacks, American officials unveiled a $300 million plan Saturday to beef up border enforcement along Iraq's porous 2,260-mile frontier by adding more forces, sensors and computer tracking of visitors.


The $300 million comes from a special congressional allocation to rebuild Iraq, Kimmitt said. Authorities will spend $150 million on equipment, including 300 new trucks to patrol the border, $104 million in frontier construction, and $46 million training guards.
We're not even going to ask who will be handling the construction contracts.
