If this is true, it's very sick:
interesting. as i've said before, there are more involved and if the investigation is allowed to go on, there will be more in the higher ups uncovered.
As for complicity in this particular instance, I'd be hard pressed to believe that the administration knew about any of this. The inevitability of the criminal fallout would be too great to risk in politics for it.
So because he says it, it is true?
I do not doubt that some of our soldiers did some awful things. I spent 8 years in the Army and I know that sometimes soldiers can get out of control. But that does not mean the President and Vice-President aer covering up what he called "war crimes". What about all the trials of the soldiers taking place? Kinda hard to cover up something that is being openly tried.
It wouldn't surprise me. I guess the ACLU needed to get pumped up or something.
I am not even concerned so much with who is responsible at upper levels. Even if George Bush himself went to Abu Ghraib and ordered these guys personally to do this, I STILL would throw these soldiers in jail for the rest of their lives. There is no excuse for this activity. None.
I find it inconceiveable that there were any orders to commit these type of acts. Maybe the forced nudity and other hulmiliation, but not pedophilic sodomy. No way.
Here's where there should be an enormous outcry from all citizens.
more abuses uncovered, Pentagon dragging its feet til after election
Warner, a Virginia Republican, said there were possible violations of the Geneva Convention and Defense Department rules and regulations on prisoners.
However, a Republican congressional source speaking on condition of anonymity said the Pentagon was "dragging its feet and intends to postpone any hearing until after" the November 2 presidential election.
"There's a lot of frustration over here," said the source.
glad you can admit that. perhaps you have earned some respect.
one thing we are taught in the military from early on.
unlawful orders are NOT enforceable. If you are given an unlawful order and you carry it out, you are just as guilty if not more guilty than the person giving you the unlawful order.
I didn't know I had lost any. That's great though freeandfun1, I hope we can be freinds here. I certainly respect your opinions.
