A "Few Bad Eggs," Continued : Judge Throws Out England's Guilty Plea

Judge Throws Out England's Guilty Plea - Yahoo! News:

Bravo to Col. James Pohl, presiding military judge at PFC. Lynndie England's court martial for prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib. But let's see what comes next.
The action came after Graner, the reputed ringleader of the abuse, testified as a defense witness at England's sentencing hearing that pictures he took of England holding a naked prisoner on a leash at Abu Ghraib were meant to be used as a legitimate training aid for other guards.
Graner maintains that he and the other Abu Ghraib guards were following orders from higher-ranking interrogators when they abused the detainees.
