In this photo taken Sunday, June 14, 2009 Palestinian security officers loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas train in the West Bank town of Jenin. In a military-style exercise, everything went according to script: U.S.-trained Palestinian commandos, faces smeared with black camouflage paint and moves carefully choreographed, stormed a mock militants' hideout in an abandoned building, 'wounding' one gunman and arresting a second. Yet reality is far less accommodating in the Israel-controlled West Bank, where Palestinian forces try to expand islands of limited authority by proving their effectiveness, including by going after Hamas militants.(AP Photo/Mohammed Ballas)
It's just a matter of time before U.S. - trained Palestinian commandos are pointing their US supplied weapons, tactics and training at Israelis.
