I'm feeling the need to cover some technical territory. It'll make for some dry reading I'm afraid but it's much needed background.

So... I'm preparing some future posts on Chain of Custody for Evidence and Property; overview of a relatively new Hostage Reporting contract clause requirement (ref); as well as a look at disposition of Personal Effects in Theater of Operations (ref); and a quick look at the Missing Persons Act (ref).

There's just no other polite way to say this: decades of standard operating procedures went right out the window in 2003. It's almost as if the Pentagon had never fought a war before. That won't be clear without introducing the background material.

PS Bonus offer...a peek at the role of the Coalition Provisional Authority in local law enforcement.
