A Model City

A Model City. Boston Globe. This segment is a must read. US
commanders and Iraqi leaders have declared their intention to make
Fallujah a “model city,” where they can maintain the security that has
eluded them elsewhere. Under the plans, troops
would funnel Fallujans to so-called citizen processing centers on the
outskirts of the city to compile a database of their identities through
DNA testing and retina scans. Residents would receive badges displaying
their home addresses that they must wear at all times. Buses would
ferry them into the city, where cars, the deadliest tool of suicide
bombers, would be banned.
