I agree with you on this. As I responded in another thread regarding her going to trial, I stated that I felt it was asinine to go after her when it
could quite easily be determined that it was not her that was responsible for the abuses, but rather the system in place at the prison. What she did
was wrong. There's no arguing that. But she's merely a scapegoat in this whole thing, to take the eyes off of those who are truly responsible.
We, as Americans, have the right to know who REALLY allowed it to happen. Was it just the detachment she was with at the prison, or was it someone
higher in command, or was it even, dare I say, an executive order?
I fear we'll never know the real culprits in this case, because the majority of the public is happy just knowing that someone has burned for the
travesties that happened at Abu Gharib. Unfortunately, this probably won't get pushed any further, like it really needs to be.
Forget the scapegoat. Who REALLY committed these atrocities?
