A Policy of Torture

This New York Times article provides yet more testimony and evidence that torture in Iraq and Afghanistan was policy. One of many shameful aspects of this is the despicable behavior of senior military commanders and their civiliian supervisors in sending low ranking enlistees to prison for crimes those senior officials authored.

It's very disturbing to me how easily the civilians at the top were able to corrupt senior military officers and get them to betray their duty and their soldiers. So far only one general officer, the guy who investigated Abu Ghraib, has put patriotism and duty before career.
