Okay, military intelligence and higher ups were not involved in the Iraq prison scandals. So how the grunts, who are going to take the heat, know so much about how to shame Iraqi men? Is there a school for scandal somewhere in the military training process?

I wonder how the citizens of this country could have been so taken in by the push to invade Iraq a year ago. It was obvious before the war started that there were no weapons of mass destruction. We had not finished what had to be done in Afghanistan to keep us safer from terrorists and then we involve ourselves in a country where the only issue was oil. Hussein did not threaten us. People tell me that he had violated U.N. directives, yet the major one he violated was supposed to be WMDs which were never there. And if he violated U.S. resolutions was it not the U.N.'s responsibility to enforce them? Now we are considering re-electing a "war" president whose errors got us there in the first place? How can we be so dumb?
