U.S. Army dog handler Sgt. Michael Smith was found guilty today of abusing POWs at Abu Ghraib prison and faces up to eight years and nine months in prison.
He's one of those "bad apples" the anti-American right has been talking about.
It is a shame. Not that he is being punished, because what he did is reprehensible. But it is a shame that we will put him in jail and let those wgho are responsible for the abuse go unpunished. Like Geoffrey Miller. And Donald Rumsfeld. And Deadeye Dick Cheney.
And George W. Bush.
