Free for all?

Pentagon report says Rumsfeld and leadership only indirectly to blame for abuse.

CNN reports:
There was chaos at Abu Ghraib," Schlesinger said, and "sadism on the night shift." The report said the direct responsibility lay with commanders in the field rather than in Washington. Pentagon leaders, however, had an indirect role.

But if the Sudanese government is to be blamed for the reported actions of janjaweed (as it should, for its state machinery is superior to any armed group, and it has a duty and reasonable means to stop or substantially reduce atrocities), why is the neo-con leadership of the US exempt for the blame?

But, that is almost as much honesty as I can expect from the Pentagon today.
