Iraq abuse insider disciplined
A US Army sergeant who gave an insider's view of Abu Ghraib prison to the media has lost his security clearance and been disciplined by the military for speaking out, he said today

Sergeant Samuel Provance said soldiers he served with in Iraq were treating him as a pariah, but that he would not change a thing if given a second chance. "My soldiers who were at Abu Ghraib are so scared now they're not even talking to me any more - I'm like a villain, but would I do it again? Of course I would, because I stand behind what I said," Provance said in a telephone interview from Heidelberg, Germany, where his military intelligence unit is based.
"I knew what was being reported was not true."
A spokesman for V Corps, which oversees Provance's unit, said he knew of no disciplinary action, but that the sergeant had been ordered not to talk to the media

Punish a whisleblower, but the officials who ordered the torture-CIA officials and private contractors-go unpunished.

2. Unpunished? Smirk called Sanchez "fabulous."
He said he had done a fabulous job in Iraq.

3. Fabulous? Yes! Absolutely!

If we take the *original* meaning of 'fabulous' into account, yes.

If a thing is considered 'fabulous' it means that it is untrue or a fake. A 'confabulation' is a lie.

Recall Aesop's fables. A fable: an untrue story, a lie.

This whole damned ADMINISTRATION is so farkling fabulous it HURTS!
