Various articles (whose views and agenda's are irrelevant) mentioning B.G. Karpinski, all sadly ironic after the latest news.
Looks like a lot of wool pulled over people's eyes:http://burns.house.gov/html/release.cfm?id=70
I rode into Iraq from BIAP to the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) Headquarters with BG Janice Karpinski. General Karpinski, a resident of Hilton Head, Georgia, commands the reserve forces responsible for all prisons in Iraq. She briefed us on conditions in Iraq prisons. The current focus is on the training of Iraq guards to assume responsibility for Iraq prison operations.
We also tour the notorious Abu Gharib prision. General Janice Karpinski leads the tour and indicates that as many as 80,000 Iraqi citizens were executed in this prison. We stand in the torture rooms where people had scrawled last messages on the walls as they awaited execution. We also stand in the execution chamber and actually watch how executions occurred. This is an extremely grisly sight that leaves me speechless. I can only pray for the myriad of souls who lost their lives in this barbaric facility.
As coalition troops conduct raids and make arrests, detainees are placed in makeshift camps and prisons all over Iraq. Gen. Janice Karpinski, whose 800th Military Police Brigade oversees all the detention centers, said there were 3,000-4,000 prisoners in 30 prisons and camps across the country.
People living and working near Abu Ghraib said they were surprised to learn the coalition would use the same facility to hold Iraqis jailed by Americans.
"They've got people in there now?" asked Ala Hussein, tending a soft drink and fruit stall along the dusty highway that passes the prison. He shook his head as he squinted in the direction of the compound.
Even the top U.S. official in Iraq said the coalition-run detention centers were "completely and utterly unacceptable under any international standards." But at the same time L. Paul Bremer said he was disappointed with a recent human rights report accusing the coalition of violating international laws in its treatment of Iraqi prisoners.
By the way she is pantomiming machine-gunning their genitals. Not sure if anyone picked up on that up or not. (Although perhaps she is merely pointing and giving a thumbs up. She later gives only the thumbs up, so I might be wrong).
Also, the above was merely Googled. I have not read those websites regularly aside from this instance. That's in case any dot connectors want to somehow tie me to a particular site or view.
