Iraqi Dissidents End Training in Hungary

(BBC) Nick Thorpe - The first group of Iraqi dissidents is due to complete its training at a U.S. airbase in Hungary on Friday. They will now be sent to U.S. army units closer to Iraq, and a new group of Iraqis will begin training in Hungary. The first batch of Iraqis came mostly from the U.S. They gave up comfortable lives and in many cases left their families for an indefinite period to volunteer for this mission. They are trained in self-defense and in a range of liaison skills between U.S. forces and the civilian population.
