The stink of Abu Ghraib is getting closer to Rumsfeld
The former warden of the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq testified Wednesday that he attended a meeting in which the then-commander of the Guantanamo Bay prison recommended using military dogs for interrogation.
Maj. David Dinenna testified at the end of a preliminary hearing for two Army dog handlers accused of abusing Iraqi detainees. Dinenna said at a September 2003 meeting, Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller, the Guantanamo Bay commander, talked about the effectiveness of using the dogs.
"We understood that he was sent over by the secretary of defense," Dinenna testified.
The statements bolstered defense claims that the use of dogs to terrify inmates were sanctioned high up the chain of command and were not the actions of a few rogue soldiers, as the government claims.
The Senators have seen the pictures. Repuglican and Dem alike are repulsed and sickened. Tie the pictures with this testimony that responsibility for AG runs all the way up the chain of command and maybe, just maybe, Rumsfeld can be ousted.
God I hate these people.
