Not subject to the cloak of loyalty enjoyed by such inept administration officials as Condi Rice, Paul Wolfowitz and Donald Rumsfeld, a female Army officer has taken the fall for the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.
Writes the AP:
The Army announced that it demoted Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, whose Army Reserve unit was in charge of the prison compound during the period of abuse. Dropping her in rank to colonel required approval from President Bush, and officials said that he granted it on Thursday.
That brave leader of men, our feckless resident Bush saw fit in his personal code of loyalty and sense of justice to single out one woman officer, while a host of yes-men and bungling bureaucrats walk scot free for their failures that have cost taxpayers billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives, including those of more than 1,000 Americans.
