Images from Anbar Operations HQ (and can we find out how these plates got there?)

ISF progress in Ramadi continued today. An Iraqi Air Force page on Facebook posted some photos from Ramadi after Iraqi troops from the Army and Counter Terrorism Service recaptured the former HQ of the Anbar Operations Command. As often happens, soldiers found vehicles with plates issued in neighboring countries. This time the plates came from Saudi Arabia. I wonder what kind of cooperation, if any, exists between Iraq and the neighbors in tracking down those involved in purchasing and smuggling these vehicles (or making fake plates). If I were a Saudi security official I would pick up the phone and talk to the Iraqis right away. Even if neighbors don't get along very well you'd expect a country to be interested in figuring out who's doing this kind of stuff.
