One Women's Army - Torturegate: Transformation of the United States from a nation that did not torture to one that does

(excerpt)

//www.booktv.org/PublicLives/index.asp?segID=6418&schedID=385

I just watched the author of "One Women's Army", Janis Karpinski, on book TV tell how she was made out to be the fall guy in "command" (she never was) of Abu Ghraib interrogation unit. She was the one star general who was demoted to Colonel while "gitmo" Miller, the guilty party, was promoted from two star general to three, as was his superior (from three to four star) the overall Iraq commander Sanchez. Typical Bush logic. Fire Powell and give WMD "slam dunk" Tenant, "fire Iraq army" Bremer, and "protect the oil ministry only" Franks "Medals of Freedom". Just like demoting Richard Clarke and obstructing all pre 9-11 inquiries was used to get their Pearl Harbor. FBI's Franca was promoted for that.

Excerpt from Mark Danner article:
//www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2004/06/02_torture2.shtml

Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez, the overall commander in Iraq, who on October 12 (about the time Red Cross investigators were making their two unannounced inspections) signed a classified memorandum calling for interrogators at Abu Ghraib to work with military police guards to "manipulate an internee's emotions and weaknesses" and to assume control over the "lighting, heating ... food, clothing, and shelter" of those they were questioning. (Including dogs, according to Karpinski on C-SPAN.)

I'm glad retired "Colonel" Karpinski is getting a book out of this, she deserves a multimillion dollar lawsuit, if only this were the private sector. We've got to get congress back so Karpinski can testify at the beginning of the torturegate impeachment of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld.

Aren't the Geneva Conventions a Senate approved constitutional Article I section 6 "highest law of the land"? If so, our top officials have violated their constitutional oaths.
