England Convicted

Army reservist Lynndie England, she of pointing at Iraqi prisoner while smoking fame, was convicted by a military jury today on six of seven counts of abusing prisoners.

England was one of nine reservists charged with the abuse, and only the third to be convicted. The other six made plea deals. So far, nobody higher up the chain of command has been charged with any wrongdoing despite all we know about torture techniques being authorized.

For those who still insist on being apologists for the techniques that have been used in Iraq, perhaps you missed the news articles indicating that 70-90% of those arrested and sent to Iraqi prisons were innocent.
