TPM: Letters Home from AG abuser.....
Le Monde has posted some hand-written letters home from Sergeant Ivan L. "Chip" Frederick II. Frederick is one the soldiers at the heart of the prison scandal in Iraq. And these letters were in the form of accounts of behavior he was both participating in but also morally troubled by.

I've just skimmed through so far. But this section, which I've transcribed to the best of my ability, is one that jumped out at me ...
Back around Nov an OGA prisoner was brought to IA. They stressed him out so bad that the man passed away. They put his body in a body bag and packed him in ice for approximately 24 hours in the shower in 1B. The next day the medics came in and put his body on a stretcher, placed a fake I.V. in his arm and took him away. This OGA was never processed and therefore never had a number.
That's on page 10 of the .pdf document on the Le Monde website. It's also noted in Hersh's piece in The New Yorker.

It just keeps getting worse and worse and worse.

God help us when revenge is sought.

5. So sad. Such a disgrace.
The Busheviks have dishonored our military so very badly. Our International Reputation may NEVER recover (unless we try and convict the Ringleaders of the Bush Crime Family and they would Nuke the World before allowing that to happen).

9. Why did he only write home about it?
Why do the good soldiers enable others to commit war crimes?

That's something that really stands out to me about Kerry. He came back and DID something.
