Something was said on CNN this morning, and I wonder if it will stun you like it stunned me.
First – let me say – in no way, shape, or form do I have compassion for terrorists, but I do take issue with people who take advantage of their authority.
Let me remind you of those photos from the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq:
Former Army Spc. Charles Graner, and the woman he later married, Megan Ambuhl, thumbs up and smiling over tightly stacked, naked prisoners. They say they were just following orders.
Then there was former Army Pfc. Lynndie England, puffing a smoke near a prisoner and posing for the camera.
By the way, we know of no classified memo that would condone pointing at a prisoner's genitals while someone's taking a picture.
OK. Now that your memory is refreshed... listen to this, from CNN's American Morning:
11 of her soldiers were convicted of crimes related to the scandal – and some officers were reprimanded.
Now that CIA memos on torture have been released, Karpinski says 'hey, why shouldn't my soldiers be off the hook too?'.
What do you think – do they deserve presidential pardons?
