Pentagon Says Abu Ghraib Wasn't Their Fault


by Steve

Is anyone really surprised that Rummy's whitewashed final investigative report from the Army exonerates senior Army and Pentagon officials for the Abu Ghraib disaster, and alleges it was all the female subordinate's fault? To say that Lt. General Ricardo Sanchez was blameless in the matter, given the media coverage and Seymour Hersh's work to date is laughable and immediately tarnishes anything further said by the Pentagon or White House on the matter. But will Senator John Warner, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee let it go at that, when he said he would wait until he saw what the military came up with?

Of course he will.
