On fish stinking from the head down:

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and senior generals share responsibility for the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and failed to ensure that overseas military prisons were running smoothly, a review panel said yesterday in a final report that portrays the extent of prisoner abuse at military camps around the globe as greater than previously known. (Boston Globe)

So the inverstigative panel is saying that aggressive techniques (i.e. torture) “migrated” from Guantanamo to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Dear reader, if torturing certain human beings doesn’t bother you all that much (and may whatever deity you call home have mercy on you) then how does the thought of torture creeping from one part of government to another grab you?
