I just don't buy it

The soldiers quoted in the report expressed much confusion about what types of treatment were allowed under the Geneva Conventions, which bar mistreatment of prisoners of war or civilian detainees.

Bullshit. They're either lying or too stupid to have been let into the military in the first place. No way could anyone 'be confused' unless they wanted to be.

RTFO!
The only soldiers whom I am going to excuse are the very young ones. C'mon, since when does someone as impressionable and not so bright as Lindy England get enough guts to not do something that a superior twice her age strongly orders her to do? Shit, at that age, I would have done it, because I'd be scared shitless of being punished!

Otherwise, these mendacious twits are screwing it up for 99.999% of the soldiers who act professionally.

It didn't help that Rummy and Albert Gonzalez kind of muddied the waters as to what constitutes "torture." As usual, it's the little guys and gals who get most of the punishment and the blame.
