      From his lawyer, quoted in the Salon piece:

      Captain Brinson had no knowledge while he was at Abu Ghraib of conduct by certain soldiers

      Sure he had knowledge about about it. Here's two things he knew:

      Soldier reports of Brinson beating a guy on November 24? Just pretending.
