Army Spc. Charles Graner, who was recently sentenced to 10 years in military prison, got off easy. He should be serving his sentence – along with impregnated torture moll, Lyndie England, in Abu Ghraib prison itself. He should be picking out a hood and practicing holding his breath right now.
To say he was following orders is to pretend that Nuremburg never happened. What is safe to say happened, however, is that more innocent lives were lost because of flotsam such as Graner. His sexual perversions transcended “rough treatment” and amounted to a PR coup for Al Qaeda, which further fueled the recruiting of Islamo-martyrs.
