Spc. Jeremy C. Sivits, one of the Abu Ghraib torturers who brought dishonor on his country and further inflamed Iraqi insurgents, didn’t get what he deserved after his guilty plea. But he got as much as a court-martial could dish out. A year in prison, reduction in rank and a bad conduct discharge.
Sivits disgraced himself and his country and further jeopardized the lives of American occupation troops.
And this just in.
In Sivits’ home town of Hyndman, Pa., his guilty plea and sentence prompted a candlelight vigil on his behalf that was attended by some 200 residents wearing yellow ribbons. Apparently that’s what irreparable damage to America prompts in that Pennsylvania burg.
What is it about appalling, disgusting, perverted, horrendous and “aiding and abetting the enemy” that the ostensibly good folks of Hyndman don’t understand?
