Karpinski: “Like Dogs”

Some interesting breaking news from Australia:

PRIME Minister John Howard today defended his refusal to call Major George O’Kane before a Senate inquiry, despite revelations the military lawyer had warned of prisoner violations in Iraq’s Abu Ghraib jail.


Brigadier General Janis Karpinski, who was suspended from duty as head of the jail after the prisoner abuse scandal, has said Major O’Kane, an Australian army officer, had aggressively warned about Geneva Convention violations at Abu Ghraib.


General Karpinski also said she was told by a military intelligence commander that detainees should be treated like dogs.


She said she and her soldiers were being made scapegoats for abuse ordered by others.

She’s talking about Miller, you can listen to that interview here.
