A German shepherd sniffed suitcases in an airport inspection drill, excitedly pausing near one bag from which a handler then pulled a satchel with plastic explosives. The exercise at the compound of the Jordanian police canine unit, staged for visitors recently, is part of the U.S. State Department's expanding Anti-Terrorism Assistance Program. The program has allocated $300 million this year to train and equip domestic security forces in partner nations — so far 21 out of a pool of 56. The aim is to improve the safety of U.S. diplomats and citizens abroad and to support U.S. allies.
