Jay already posted about this article here, but I thought it merited highlighting as yet more evidence of the utter insanity of the course that Bush, Rice, and Olmert are following.

“Dozens of officers in the (Fatah-affiliated) security forces are suspected of cooperating with Hamas during the Islamist group’s takeover of the Gaza Strip,” a senior Palestinian security official said Sunday.
According to the official, some senior officers have been suspected of cooperating with Hamas even prior to the decisive round of clashes with Fatah. He said the officers received money from Hamas in exchange for transferring information on the deployment of Palestinian Authority forces in the Strip.
The official added that suspicions grew when the positions of forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas fell to Hamas gunmen one after the other without much resistance.
“These suspicions were in the air, but during the fighting the extent of Hamas” infiltration into the Palestinian security forces became abundantly clear,” the official said.
