I somehow missed this when he first prepared it back in January -- I was in Kuwait without connectivity -- but this is ALL anyone ever needs to read about Abu Ghraib. It coincidentally is all one needs to read about Seymour Hersh to realize Hersh is surely no journalist, whatever else he may be.
The story the Army tells of a handful of sick individuals acting independently, with immediate supervisors reporting them the moment they became aware of their behavior, is the best factual description of what happened.
Those who wish to believe otherwise do so because they want to believe the worst about this administration, and our efforts in Iraq, without regard to evidence or facts.
Or they know what's true, but that doesn't stop them from wanting to hurt the United States or tarnish the reputation of the U.S. Military. And thanks to irresponsible and inaccurate reporting, Abu Ghraib became their disparagement of choice.
