General Pleads the 5th about Prisoner Abuse

Quote from the Washington Post
Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller, a central figure in the U.S. detainee-abuse scandal, this week invoked his right not to incriminate himself in court-martial proceedings against two soldiers accused of using dogs to intimidate captives at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, according to lawyers involved in the case.

The move by Miller -- who once supervised the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and helped set up operations at Abu Ghraib -- is the first time the general has given an indication that he might have information that could implicate him in wrongdoing, according to military lawyers.
Everyone in the Bush administration has been trying to lead us to believe that only a few low ranking soldiers were responsible for all the abuse at the prisons and that critics who thought that the orders came from officials and high ranking military officers were wrong.

I believe the answers to questions will come out soon. We will know which high ranking officers, private contractors and administration officials knew about or ordered the abuse of prisoners. Blaming low ranking soldiers, then claiming you support those same soldiers who risk their lives in Iraq is just wrong.

More things that just piss me off

unfortunately that is always the case. Of course rumsfeldt, bush, cheney, none of them knew about any of this. Niether did the generals or private contractors or the CIA.

It was just the soldiers who had the idea all by themselves.

hmmmmmm.
