1. The real question is:
Why haven't Major General Miller and General Sanchez been court-martialed? And why does Rummy still work at the Pentagon?

2. i saw it last night
and was overwhelmed. a very powerful documentary. the video of the "boys" play acting at beating prisoners was so diabolical and spoke volumes about the mentality in the prison zone.
these things done in our name. shame shame shame

5. That Was Very Disturbing!
Great account and summary of the events and the responsibility of the entire chain of command.

7. They are the psychological casualties of a pre-packaged war.
Military recruiters and psychologists prey on the most base human attributes.

6. Saw it and recommend it
They showed how a few were scapegoats of Bushs push to ignore the Geneva convention and allow torture. To me this is bushs biggest crime of all . It ranks up there with the illegal invasion and occupation war crimes.
