Judge throws out Abu Ghraib guilty plea
FORT HOOD, Texas - A military judge Wednesday threw out Pfc. Lynndie England’s guilty plea to prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib, saying that he was not convinced that she knew that her actions were wrong at the time.
This just boggles my mind. How is it that we are past the one year anniversary of this horrific discovery and the only people who've been held responsible are the peons dumb enough to have followed the orders they were given?
Let's hope this judge starts a trend so that we can finally find out who England reported to and who that person reported to and up the chain of command until we get to the person who said the whole fiasco was okay.
Dopey reservists from West Virginia don't think up shit like this on their own. It took imagination and creativity the likes of which haven't been seen (possibly) since the Spanish Inquisition.
