The Abu Ghraib Supplementary Documents

/ torture / investigations / forgotten /

"The military's mission at Abu Ghraib was inadequately planned almost from conception. It was subordinated to political and intelligence goals and bogged down at every level by inadequate resources and hostile conditions, according to classified documents reviewed and now posted by the Center for Public Integrity.

The documents, the first installment of background materials from Army Major General Anthony Taguba's investigation [pdf file] into abuses of military detainees in Iraq, were provided to the Center by Rolling Stone contributor Osha Gray Davidson. The Center plans to post the second installment of the documents later this month."

Some chilling documents... Especially upsetting is the document of the CID investigation [pdf file ~6Mb -not for the slowly connected].
