Donald Rumsfeld, is considering new top command assignments that would possibly include promoting Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez, the former American commander in Iraq during the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal, U.S. military officials say.
The military takes the position that this man has been cleared.
I take it the way that the rest of the world will, as a clear sign that torture is rewarded in the Bush Administration. When your military command is home to a world class mistake, you shouldn't be promoted no matter what excuses you provide. It is a simple matter of self-respect on the part of our military.
