This is all wrong

I'm currently listening to a programme on BBC Radio 4 about the embedding of Social Anthropologists with the US military in Iraq to do 'human terrain work' -- research hand-in-hand with counter-insurgency activities.
Well, I may be just an old-fashioned Welsh mining valley socialist (that's 'pinko commie' in Dubya-speak) but I wish to state that, in my view as an academic who has a background partly in Soc. anth., I consider this utterly unacceptable and abusive and I strongly censure any academic who involves themselves in this work.
