Oh, those poor GI MP's................

by Del McMullen / May 7, 2004 7:45 AM PDT

To her mother, US army private Lynndie England was a young woman "in the wrong
place at the wrong time", as much a victim of "a stupid prank" as the helpless prisoner
she holds on a leash like a dog, in a photo that shocked the world.


Read to the bottom of the article.

England worked in a chicken-processing plant and was briefly married before she signed up for duty in Iraq. She is now pregnant with the child of 35-year-old army specialist Charles Graner, who has been implicated in the scandal. His lawyer said he was "following orders" in abusing prisoners.

Graner, a former prison officer, was involved in an abuse scandal at Greene state correctional institution in southern Pennsylvania two years ago but it is unclear whether he was disciplined, newspaper reports said.

The reports also said that Graner's former wife Staci obtained three court protection orders after he hit and threatened to kill her.

What's next in this story ?
by Del McMullen / May 7, 2004 3:12 PM PDT

When I saw those pictures of the Americans abusing the Iraqis
I wondered why a female was working as a guard in a male

I guess the word now is that she wasn't. She was "visiting" her
boyfriend, who was in the pictures with her.

Where was the supervision when all of this was going on ?
