    Torture is a huge issue; goes to the very top

    We've been continuously told that the disgusting treatment of prisoners in the Abu Ghraib prison complex was the result of poor decisions by a few 'bad apples.' We were assured that the problem was limited in nature and was addressed. It would take a lot of alcohol and/or American torture to make me believe that. As if we need more proof that this is a problem embraced by the pentagon if not the White House, we learn that Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller has chosen to plead the military equivalent of the fifth to Avid self-incrimination.
    Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller, a central figure in the U.S. detainee-abuse scandal, this week invoked his right not to incriminate himself in court-martial proceedings against two soldiers accused of using dogs to intimidate captives at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, according to lawyers involved in the case.

    The move by Miller -- who once supervised the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and helped set up operations at Abu Ghraib -- is the first time the general has given an indication that he might have information that could implicate him in wrongdoing, according to military lawyers.

    America = Torture. Period. And this administration is to blame.
