American soldiers brutalized Iraqis. How far up does the responsibility go?
This seems to be a very thorough account of the data thus far about the horror at Abu Ghraib.
On the downside, the incidents there were not isolated ones. On the upside, the issues were identified months ago and steps seem to have been taken to try and address them.
I'm still fuzzy on timelines though. Were the pictures we saw from the incidents that occurred last year, that have since been stopped? Or were these new activities? From the report, it looks like the main problems were from October - December 2003. Officers were suspended months ago, and the trials are already underway on some -- it just wasn't public knowledge.
But, has it stopped? Or not?
