And I'm not talking about terrorists (though they are too).
I'm talking about Americans. This link will take you to Salon.com, which has published some 200+ photos from Abu Ghraib. (VERY VERY DISTURBING)
Now, we know that Bush blames it on his underlings. And those underlings, ignoring the principles of command responsibility, blame it on their underlings. Et cetera.
Meanwhile, the American public yawns. So what. They were terrorists? They're foreigners. They wanted to hurt the USA. They aren't Christian.
The existence, and the toleration, of Abu Ghraib is a blot on America. If the nation rose up in anger, if the people who tortured, and every single person up the chain of command were also held to count for this, it would be one thing.
But America's complete apathy, the lack of any punishment, is a damning indictment not only of American government but also of the American people.
