A Couple of Charges Against Abu Ghraib Official Dropped August 20, 2007

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

A military judge just dismissed two of the most serious charges against the only officer charged with abusing detainees at Abu Ghraib prison.

Army Lt. Col. Steven L. Jordan is the former director of the prison’s interrogation center. He is an O-5 with at least 17 years of service.

An investigator admitted he failed to read the defendant, Jordan, his rights.

Of all of the people in this galaxy, there are a few whom we can really expect to know the rights of a defendant. To be able to repeat them backwards, even after six hours of serious drinking at the Officer’s Club. To be one of the few in the universe who do not need anyone to read them to him. Who would think it an INSULT if I read him his rights.

And Jordan is one of them.

Is this military judge the same one who sued the Korean cleaners who lost his pants?

Sandy, you’re right. Take my hand, and we’ll go watch some Fraggles.
