Abu Ghraib redux

Sy Hersh is apparently breaking another story…and since it involves Abu Ghraib and not the Kennedy’s, it’s all good:

“In interviews with New Yorker reporter Seymour M. Hersh, Taguba said that he was ordered to limit his investigation to low-ranking soldiers who were photographed with the detainees and the soldiers' unit, but that it was always his sense that the abuse was ordered at higher levels.Abu Ghraib Investigator Points to Pentagon

A little more than three years ago, though, General Taguba was telling the US Senate this:

“We did not find any evidence of a policy or a direct order given to these soldiers to conduct what they did. I believe that they did it on their own volition and I believe that they collaborated with several MI [military intelligence] interrogators at the lower level," Taguba said.” - Taguba: No direct order given for abuse - May 13, 2004
