    Maybe I missed something? What price? All this is very old news, why do you think Agence France is bringing it up again?

    The report just came out saturday.

    You see they made him resign recently.

    He was carreer military and having to do the report killed his carreer.

    He told the truth in the report which included that Rummy was covering his ass.

    If he had covered for Rummy the military would have never trusted his ass again either.

    He was dead in the water either way.

    He chose to tell the truth!

    A good man who the military will now no longer have in its ranks.

    Thanks for supporting my argument that leftwingnuts just regurgitate talking points.

    Correct me if I am wrong .... all of the Army National Guard prison guards implicated in violating the law have been tried and punished.

    What price is it this general supposedly paid?

    How is it that you presume to know an explanation that hasn't been given?

    The General’s Report
    by Seymour M. Hersh
    http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2...?currentPage=2


    "Taguba, looking back on his testimony, said, “That’s the reason I wasn’t in their camp—because I kept on contradicting them. I wasn’t about to lie to the committee. I knew I was already in a losing proposition. If I lie, I lose. And, if I tell the truth, I lose.”

    Taguba had been scheduled to rotate to the Third Army’s headquarters, at Fort McPherson, Georgia, in June of 2004. He was instead ordered back to the Pentagon, to work in the office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs. “It was a lateral assignment,” Taguba said, with a smile and a shrug. “I didn’t quibble. If you’re going to do that to me, well, O.K. We all serve at the pleasure of the President.” A retired four-star Army general later told Taguba that he had been sent to the job in the Pentagon so that he could “be watched.” Taguba realized that his career was at a dead end."

    For some reason, Hersh has very little credibility regarding truth:

    He's known for adding inflammatory and admittedly not always true pr to his 'stories.'


    Example of just such:
