Sound Destruction: Still No Top-Level Accountability

Still No Top-Level Accountability

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

The US army inspector general's report finds no evidence of wrongdoing by Gen Sanchez and three of his top aides. For anyone who doesn't find this outrageous and needs a hard smack upside the head, educate yourself and let Wikipedia enlighten you (warning - extremely graphic photos included in link) with a reminder of the atrocities that occurred at Abu Ghraib. Then read on about the findings from the Army's Fay report and the independent Schlesinger panel's findings as previously reported in the New York Times that implicate Gen. Sanchez as a direct source of the horrific torture.

Yes, 5 soldiers have already been convicted and 3 more await trial, rightfully so, but where the fuck is the accountability at the top? This is becoming a tired theme in our nation. Especially when Bush, who continues to lead the pack in top-level non-accountability, handled this by promoting Sanchez and insisting Rumsfeld stay on.

Does anyone else feel the bile rising?!

This is typical, ay? The trail of guilt leads all the way to the white house, but only a few scapegoats will pay the legal price, and then they'll end up with book deals.
