Shocking as it is

The defense department is covering its ass:

Army Report on Iraqi Prisoner Abuse Faults Military Interrogators

U.S. media are reporting that a new Army report on abuse at Baghdad’s Abu Ghraib prison cites misconduct by military interrogators, but clears high-ranking Pentagon officials.

Its kind of funny how the defense department manages to use the chain of command as a tool when it suits their purposes but when it comes to taking responsibility when bad things happen they’re more than happy to hang the leaf nodes out to dry. What ever happened to officers tacking responsibility for the attitudes and behaviors they instill within their organizations?

I’m sorry.. Im just not buying it..
