Can You Guess? Episode II

I think I will start a category of posts called the "can you guess" series, this recent post was the first one, i suppose.

Ok, ready? Can you guess who publicly claimed that Israelis were working inside of Abu Ghreib as interrogators?

No, it wasn't Iran's hardline president Mahmoud Ahmadinejhad speaking at the World Without Zionism conference in Iran.

It was Colonel Janis Karpinski speaking from her personal experience back when she was General Karpinski, and hadn't yet been demoted to Colonel because of the Abu Ghreib scandal.

Among Karpinski's other stunning announcements on today's Democracy Now were that Mr. Rumsfeld himself gave direct orders in the form of memoranda, outlining interrogation policies that violated Geneva conventions. She also named General Miller as being responsible for "migrating" policies implemented at Guantanemo to Abu-Ghreib. Alberto Gonzalez, the U.S. Attorney General was also singled out for his role in justifying torture.

Anyone still think that Abu-Ghreib scandal was the result of the actions of a few bad apple soldiers?
