Army Officer Is Cleared in Abu Ghraib Scandal

The only Army officer charged with a crime as a result of the abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq has been cleared of all criminal responsibility in the case after a general this week dismissed the one conviction against him and wiped away the sentence.
Isn't this just sweet though!

The people responsible are never called to task. If nothing else, Donald Rumsfeld should be charged with aiding and abetting the crimes at Abu Ghraib, and certainly there are a few Colonels and Generals along the way who did nothing about what happened there. Only the grunts who followed the orders of officers like this guy paid any price for those atrocities.
