BBC NEWS | Americas | Abu Ghraib report attacks 'chaos'
I heard a discussion of this report on NPR. One number stuck in my head: 75:1. That was the ratio of Abu Ghraib prisoners to military police.
At Guantanomo Bay the ratio was 1:1. Without mortars. With an apparently more disciplined set of detainees.
The military police who served at Abu Ghraib under those conditions, and who did not abuse prisoners, deserve medals.
Those who spoke out against the abuse deserve medals and promotions. (Though Bush will give them neither.)
Rumsfeld deserves a rotation at Abu Ghraib.
