England Convicted

PFC Lynndie Englad was convicted today on six counts , one for conspiracy, four for detainee abuse, and one for committing an indecent act.

She will now await sentencing.

England is possibly the highest profile defendent in the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal, and her trial was the last of the nine for soldiers tried in the wake of last year's photos.

And of course, managing to avoid responsibility for the whole thing are those responsible for putting the policies in place that made it ok to abuse detainees, and then, when it became inconvenient, hung them out to dry.

This is disgusting enough that commenting further would only tarnish my fine reputation for calm, intelligent discourse. Fucking 9 people, none of them in positions of real power.

Yeah, fuck the little guy, while the people who order torture continue to run our country into the ground.
