Fun in the Neighborhood

This just in, from Josh Marshall…

The head of military intelligence at Abu Ghraib apparently put military police at the disposal of interrogators and gave them orders to do stuff like strip detainees, shackle them and generally give them a working over (though only, he said, when there was “some good reason”). But, along with this, there was no superivision of what they were doing and no guidelines or rules given to them saying what was acceptable and what wasn’t… At a minimum, that sounds like giving benzine, some cordite, a gallon of gas, firecrackers, and a hundred rolls of toilet paper to some teenagers, telling them to see if they could put it all together to have some fun in the neighborhood on Friday night and then leaving them to their own devices.
