Report: Rumsfield approved of abuses!

"Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld authorized the expansion of a secret program that encouraged physical coercion and sexual humiliation of Iraqi prisoners to obtain intelligence about the growing insurgency in Iraq, The New Yorker reported Saturday. "

The link to the article in the New Yorker:

"The roots of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal lie not in the criminal inclinations of a few Army reservists but in a decision, approved last year by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, to expand a highly secret operation, which had been focussed on the hunt for Al Qaeda, to the interrogation of prisoners in Iraq."

1. Oh PLEASE let this one stick
after the countless lies and atrocities committed by this administration, will this one gain traction? Sy Hersh is on this story and shows no signal of backing off.

November seems too far away, these SOBs need to GO!

role model.(Sorry for the sick sarcasm.) Chimpy said that Rummie is the greatest SecDef ever. Therefore, Chimpy sanctions buggery and breaking 12 year old girls arms to turn their brothers in the next cell by "contractors".
