Abu Ghraib Guard Unrepentant

Don’t expect an apology from Lynndie England, the female soldier who became the face of the Abu Ghraib scandal, anytime soon. In an interview with the BBC, England replies to a question about “stripping people naked and degrading them” as an interrogation technique by saying, “Compared to what they would do to us, that’s like nothing. 'Cause if you think about it, at the same time they were cutting our guys’ heads off and burning their bodies and dragging them through the streets of Baghdad and hanging them off bridges. And this happens at colleges in dorm rooms or whatever here in the U.S. all the time.” When asked again if she approves, England says, “If it helps get whatever information they might have, sure.”
