I'm seriously pissed at the @#$%s at Abu Gharib who've been abusing Iraqis. They knew better. But I saw the silver lining that this could be a nice illustration of how our system is different--people who do bad things are exposed and punished, instead of protected and rewarded. That's how Bush was explaining it in his public statements. Except he's the commander in chief . . . which means his statements can be interpreted as an order to the jury members of the court martials to deliver a guilty verdict. In military law that's "improper command influence" and gives the accused a potential "get out of jail free" card. Argh. Argh. Argh.
