Wes Clark: Stop Blaming the Troops - Investigate the Real Culprits.

The time has come to investigate the Bush Administration's role in the prisoner abuse and humiliation that has motivated our enemies in the war on terror and endangers the well-being of our fighting forces.

There is more, and petition demanding an investigation, at the link.

while it may seem like a defense for indefensible behavior, I just want to say if you're repeated sent into a war that you consider illegal but are not able to show dissent, all the while spending at least half you time in a desert fighting people that don't want you there, and knowing that while most people support you as an american soldier they don't support the war you are fighting in, Frustrations will undoubtedly come out against someone. Since these people have no voice, they look like the people that reportedly killed 2973 people on 9/11/01 does it suprise anyone that this may or may not go on? Bush's propaganda machine is responsible.

"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men -- not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular. --- Edward R. Murrow
