Was I Wrong About the Ghraib Prison Abuse? « GWOT »

Phil Carter of Intel Dump has some good stuff regarding the Prison Abuses in Iraq in his post on 15 May.

If the sources are correct, and if his analysis is accurate, then I'm wrong about Gen. Karpinski, and Rumsfeld should step down. However, this is still in the early stages, and I'm not willing to concede anything; my assertions may still bear out. We'll see.

But like the Nick Berg story, this raises more questions than it answers.

This seems to answer the allegations well, in my opinion.

We saw this on the news last night in the form of a 30 second gloat.

I'm pretty sure I grabbed the Saran Wrap rather than the tinfoil to make my hat with, but the first thing that came to mind was that this was awfully frigging convenient.

Conspiracy theories aside, something doesn't feel right about this. I, too, am reserving judgement for the time being.

...I just didn't want to shy away from it because it didn't fit with my pre-disposed notions.

I did hesitate in blogging...but Phil has a good track record, good experience in the military and in intelligence, and understands law much better than I do. I figured at the very least I could acknowledge it and send people to look at his take on the issue.

So far, I don't think I've disagreed with anything you've had to say on the subject--including this post.

I'm trying to wait a little to see what happens in the trials. I have strong feelings on the subject, but I think that a lot of it could be changing over the next few weeks.

I appreciate that you blogged it, Nathan, for precisely those reasons.

I'm not closed to the idea that I was very wrong about this (and possibly other things by extension), but I've definitely learned to wait patiently to let it all fall out before I opine.

Thing is, I can't seem to blog without commenting so I'm glad you did. :)
