Well, I think this is the first thread to discuss this. I still can't believe those photos of the naked dogpiled Iraqi prisoners. What the hec were those soldiers thinking? Just goes to reinforce some social theories I have of human beings. As a former soldier myself, I am appalled and aghast at this behavior from "The Finest Army in the World". This is definitely a black mark in the history of the U.S. Army. I'm pretty sure the brass is going to come down hard on the people that were responsible for this. I saw the parade of CentCom brass making their apologies to the press corps and the Iraqi people. I believe that the General that was in charge of the prison was at least fired. I'm not sure if she was regular Army or Reserve. If she was Reserve I wonder what she did in her civilian life. I'm beating around the bush here but she strikes me as one of those "corporate climbers" that I've seen when I was in the Army. They are smart but willing to do almost anything to get to the next paygrade. In essence, a bullsh*t artist. The troops resented the hell out of officers and noncoms like that. The frightening thing is, that they do get promoted.
