      She's going around talking about getting used as a scapegoat.

      How she got blamed for the torture photos.

      How she got labeled as a "bad apple" and a cover for Bush and Cheney. Cheney, particularly.

      How the photos were made. That they were under orders to take pictures to document what happened.

      The torture, itself, not really. She was only there a few hours. Didn't see 99% of what's in the pics.

      The scapegoat story is what matters. The all-out dishonesty of it.

      •  Bush tried to use two of my Applachain sisters (0+ / 0-)

        without actually bring in them back in a body bag, in his dirty little torture justified war.

        FIrst Jessica the brave Amazon warrior. Blonde, wanted to be a kindergarden teacher, just perfect.

        Then Lynndie, in abused woman syndrome mode, the sadistic dominatrix. A little rugged around the edges, cigarette in her mouth, just perfect.

        The gut check for me was THREATS SHUT IT DOWN. Not "I don't like her, please don't let her come" from the LOC staff or anti-torture activist. THREATS.
