General Taguba Ousted
In an article on General Taguba in the New Yorker by Seymour Hersh, the general says that everyone knew full well about the abuses at Abu Ghraib and did nothing to stop them (one supposes that characters like Wolfowitz even encouraged them). General Taguba also says that Rumsfeld lied to Congress about it. A
And there's worse, as Craig Murray reports:
A Seymour Hersh interview with General Anthony Taguba, who investigated Abu Ghraib, confirms details of the abuse not previously public. It also confirms that the torture was sanctioned from the top. Not quoted here, but General Janis Karpinski has testified that she saw a memorandum on "Interrogation techniques" pinned to the wall by military intelligence at Abu Ghraib, signed by Donald Rumsfeld himself. Karpinski was at the top of the line of command of the guards - the military police - but not the interrogators. Taguba here notes that Rumsfeld not only denied advance knowledge, but even tried afterwards to deny having seen Taguba's report or knowing what had happened.
