Leadership Failure: Firsthand Accounts of Torture of Iraqi Detainees by the U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne Division"[At FOB Mercury] they said that they had pictures that were similar to what happened at Abu Ghraib, and because they were so similar to what happened at Abu Ghraib, the soldiers destroyed the pictures. They burned them. The exact quote was, 'They [the soldiers at Abu Ghraib] were getting in trouble for the same things we were told to do, so we destroyed the pictures.''

This has got to be stopped. And I guess it is just an amazing coincidence that The White House counsel writes a memo outlining what is considered torture and our Army proceeds to institutionalize it. Oh that's right, it was all Lyndie England's fault.
