Abu Ghraib

Abu Ghraib Probe Points to Top Brass

"An Army investigation into the role of military intelligence personnel in the abuse at the Abu Ghraib prison reports that the scandal was not just caused by a small circle of rogue military police soldiers but resulted from failures of leadership rising to the highest levels of the U.S. command in Iraq, senior defense officials said."

Some of us strongly suspect that it WASN'T the "highest levels of command in Iraq" - it was the highest levels of command in WASHINGTON.

The Bush administration tried to get the folks at Gauatanamo declared NOT covered by the Geneva Convention.

Why would they DO that, unless they wished to treat them in ways that violated the Geneva Convention?

Does anybody really think there is no relation between that and the treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib?
