Via JWZ we discover that someone in a position of authority, finally, has been found guilty of something in the wake of the Abu Grahib abuse scandal.
Lt. Col. Steven Jordan was acquitted on three counts:
cruelty and maltreatment for subjecting detainees to forced nudity and intimidation by dogs; dereliction of a duty to properly train and supervise soldiers in humane interrogation rules; and failing to obey a lawful general order by ordering dogs used for interrogations without higher approval.
So what was he guilty of?
The jury found him guilty of one: disobeying a general’s order not to talk to others about the investigation into the abuse.
Sweet God in Heaven, WHAT THE HELL?
