"Hersh's thesis is that "the roots of the Abu Ghraib scandal lie not in the criminal inclinations of a few Army reservists" who have been charged so far, "but in the reliance of George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld on secret operations and the use of coercion -- and eye-for-eye retribution -- in fighting terrorism."
Forget the law. Forget the values this country was founded on. Forget the moral superiority we once had. And forget responsibility -- those in charge will not be held acountable. War criminals every one.
But here, war criminals are hailed with yard signs and bumper stickers. Praised as "religous" and moral characters. I think that's what blows my mind the most -- despite all the evidence of this scandal and others, people willfully dismiss it because Dear Leader, what, took the war to the terrorists? Or is helping bring the second coming of christ? I just don't get why someone would want ths to continue.
