Iraqi Refugees

The US government really cannot get its act together. For years we have been complaining that there are not enough Arabic speakers in government.

With the refugees now in America we now have a small but growing contingent of refugees who are left to rot in unemployment.

Let us count the ways they could be put to good use:
1. To provide intensive cultural and practical advice for troops before they are deployed to Iraq. They could even be assigned to populate a sham Iraqi town or village to train troops for search operations.

2. To work with NSA, other intelligence agencies, and the State and Defense Departments to translate intercepted messages. I realize that deeper security clearances would have to be given.
