Karpinski refusing to go quietly
Wire Services |
"The American general who was in charge of Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison claimed she was being made a scapegoat for the abuse of detainees, and said her successor once told her that prisoners should be treated 'like dogs.' ... In an interview with British Broadcasting Corp. radio broadcast Tuesday, Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski said Miller told her last autumn that prisoners 'are like dogs, and if you allow them to believe at any point that they are more than a dog then you've lost control of them.' Miller was in charge of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp and now oversees U.S. prisons in Iraq... Karpinski said that during a visit to Iraq in September, Miller - still the commander at the Guantanamo Bay prison - spoke of wanting to 'Gitmoize' Abu Ghraib by applying the Cuban facility's regimented detention and interrogation techniques."
