From our editorial today:
And so the accountability phase of the Abu Ghraib scandal ends without a single officer being convicted of a crime and America’s reputation left unprotected. Yes, some officers were demoted. Some were fined. But a key general was allowed to resign rather than answer questions under oath about interrogation techniques. And contrary to typical prosecutorial practices, the colonel who confessed to overseeing interrogation methods that violated military protocols and the Geneva Conventions was granted immunity to help nail subordinates at their courts-martial.
Was justice served here? Blog lines are open.
