Impunity: "When the abuses first came to light, a host of legislators -- led by Republican Sens. John W. Warner (Va.), Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.) and John McCain (Ariz.) -- promised that everyone culpable would be held accountable, no matter how senior. Now the outcome they said they would not countenance, the limitation of punishment to a handful of lowly scapegoats, has come to pass. Have the senators forgotten their words?"
Of course they have forgotten their words. The reality is that nothing will be done about the Abu Ghraib scandal because it is not entertaining. The American people are not interested and are not likely to be interested. They are far too busy protecting Western Civilization from gay marriage and aggregating power just as did the Emperor Constantine in 322. Theocracies are powerful. In fact, they are second only to fascist regimes in their ability to control the populace.
