It's fishy

The accused ringleader of the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse was a specialist?

I doubt it. Specialists don’t out-rank anybody. It’s an E-4 position, lateral with Corporeal but they’re not non-commissioned officers. Specialists are Privates with slightly better paychecks.

Where are the officers and staff non-commissioned officers who were in charge of Abu Ghraib? Safely obscure.

Throw another enlisted man on the fire, the system protects it’s own.

  1. Speaking of systems protecting their own, those Tribune bastards demand you register with them.

  3. There’s a lot of doubtful knowledge out there about Abu Ghraib. Take the test, if you’re interested: 10 multiple-choice questions re: the scandal. I did very poorly, myself.

  4. It’s a cloaking trick the newspaper sites now. The newspapers like the traffic search engines draw to them, but also need to inflate their phony user statistics to sell advertisement in papers nobody reads. They now use a rules based system to determine how long the article will remain public and from which referring addresses it will appear without the registration requirement.

  5. That makes sense. I didn’t think that google had memberships to so many subscription sites.
