Torture Iraqis, get a promotion

The Pentagon plans to promote Army Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, former head of military operations in Iraq, risking a confrontation with members of Congress because of the prisoner abuses that occurred during his tenure.

Among his duties in Iraq, Sanchez oversaw all detention facilities, including Abu Ghraib prison.

They want to make him a 4-star general. The enlisted soldiers respsonsible for the tortures are getting reamed in court, yet Sanchez, who was in charge, may get promoted. Nice double standard, eh?
