Army investigates self on torture, finds little fault
The study cites 94 cases of mistreatment, but incidents at Abu Ghraib are considered a single offense
You read that right, all the grotesque torture at Abu Ghraib was counted by the Army as just one case, and they concluded it, and all other incidents, were merely “regrettable.” Plus, of course, it was all due to just a few bad apples with no fault found with higher-ups.
Even some Republicans found the report suspect.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) continued the questioning about ghost detainees, asking the inspector general at the end of a pointed exchange: “And â€¦ the question then springs to mind: What else didn’t you investigate? If we didn’t investigate a gross and egregious violation such as that, then I mean I’m curious what else you didn’t investigate.”
