      Did they really think the GROM's security would be compromised by such
      a report? I think not. It seems that unlike many other lackeys of
      imperialism, the Polish government has some shame about it. Unpopularity
      of such activity back in Poland, perhaps, or shades of 1939.

      POLES DON'T WANT WORK IN IRAQ TO BE PUBLICIZED

      Warsaw, Poland--Poland's defense minister scolded President Bush and Defense
      Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Thursday for publicly describing the actions of
      Polish commandos in Iraq, saying the U.S. leaders shouldn't use the troops
      "for propaganda."

      Bush on Wednesday told U.S. troops at the Army's Central Command in Florida
      that Polish troops had secured an Iraqi oil platform in the Persian Gulf,
      while Rumsfeld praised the Poles' professionalism.

      But Jerzy Szmajdzinski said the country's troops in Iraq include members of
      the elite GROM commando special forces unit and said Warsaw doesn't want
      information about its military activities discussed.
