In completely unrelated news, the report from the group appointed by Rummy to look at prisoner abuses is out. I haven't read it yet, so I won't comment further, although Reuters (August 24) has some interesting things to say:
Top Pentagon officials and the military command in Iraq contributed to an environment in which prisoners were abused at Abu Ghraib prison, according to a report released Tuesday by a high-level panel investigating the military detentions...That isn't all of it.
An Army investigation into the Abu Ghraib prison scandal has found that military police dogs were used to frighten detained Iraqi teenagers as part of a sadistic game, one of many details in the forthcoming report that were provoking expressions of concern and disgust among Army officers briefed on the findings.In other news (David Rising, August 24):
The U.S. military judge hearing charges of prisoner abuse at Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison rejected a request Tuesday for Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld to submit to an interview, but said he would reconsider if the defense could show a Rumsfeld link to the case.Now what would Rummy have to hide?
