General Peter Pace: bush* knew about POW sex-torture (DoD link)...
Good morning, General.

PACE: Good morning, Hannah.

STORM: General, this report which detailed these abuses was completed at the beginning of March. Why didnt the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Richard Myers, see this report? And why wasnt the president made aware of what was going on?

PACE: Well, two different parts need to be understood. One is the reporting up the chain of command, which was done immediately. On the 13th of January, the allegations by the soldier inside the unit were reported to his Army chain of command. On the 14th of January, the Criminal Investigative Division team was sent to do the investigation. The phone calls were made up the chain of command. I know I knew about it within hours of the 14th of January. And everyone was kept apprised orally of the ongoing investigation.

The major general completed the investigation. And what happens with the paperwork itself is that each commander in the chain looks at the work, reads it in detail, does his analysis of what he or she should be doing with it, makes their decisions, and then sends it up the chain. So the fact that the paperwork did not get to Washington DC did not mean that the information did not. In fact, it did.

STORM: So youre saying that General Richard Myers was well aware of the situation and that the president was well aware of the situation as well?

PACE: Yes.

2. He doesn't read anything. So his ready was the one who saw
the report. As for the pictures, he probably didn't see them either. He doesn't look at pictures. Someone else looked at them and described them.

3. In the January CNN story
that first told of this investigation, they said they seized computers and hard drives. I wonder why and whose hard drives? It couldn't have been the soldiers, they didn't have any. But they did have digital cameras. Did the torturers send the photos to someone in the DoD? Is there a pervert or two lurking the halls of the Pentagon?
