According to AP, Defence Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said yesterday, that:
"...more media attention was given to U.S. soldiers' abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib than to the fact that Sgt. 1st Class Paul Ray Smith received the Medal of Honor."
Now that's a real good argument for avoiding things like the abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib!
It is not only a question of punishing those who are responsible for it (Rumsfeld?)
It is also a question of firing those incompetent politicians, who does nothing to avoid such things (Rumsfeld?)
