US officer tried over Abu Ghraib


news.bbc.co.uk

The court martial of the only US Army officer charged in connection with the abuse scandal at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison has begun.

Lt-Col Steven Jordan, 51, is the last of 12 defendants to appear. He is accused of illegally allowing the use of dogs and nudity in interrogations.

The inquiry was triggered by pictures of US soldiers humiliating and abusing Iraqi prisoners in 2003 and 2004.

Lt-Col Jordan has pleaded innocent and says he is being used as a scapegoat.

So, only 1 officer is to be charged over this?
I find it hard to believe that only 1 officer knew what was going on.
And if others knew it was going on and didn't stop it, that counts as tacit approval and complicity.

Jordan has said that he is being used as a scapegoat, and I can easily believe this - it beggars belief that no one else knew.
