15. This really has it all...
Yelping treason. Dark threats. Facts wrong about how well the investigation was going (e.g., Rummy - "I read about the torture but I did not give a sh*t until I saw a picture!"). Admitting that, yes, it was bad, bad, bad...but then looking straight to the gutter when determining the relevant standards for brutality and torture (i.e., two wrongs make a right). Wild speculation about what would have happened had CBS just kept everything secret. Blaming the messenger. No evident concern about accountability and the need to fix the problem to avoid repeating the same mistakes. Iraq = Osama. Assuming this single event ruined our image in the Mideast. Not looking to the root causes. Naivete. Suckerism.
