Gen. Dimwit says “Iraqis will forgive jail abuse”

The people of Iraq will forgive US-led occupying forces for the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, according to a senior coalition spokesman.

Brig Gen Mark Kimmitt told the BBC’s Talking Point programme that the photos of abuse by US soldiers at the Baghdad jail were not representative.

Maybe someone should tell Gen. Dimwit that forgiveness is not something those requiring forgiveness should arrogantly order their victims to produce – and that, if and when forgiveness comes, it should be accepted humbly with apologies given.

“Why, oh why, do they hate us?”
