Abu Ghraib, prisoner abuse and Rumsfeld's possible collusion

This article in the New Yorker (link thru Drudge) makes for sober reading; I will be interested to see how this pans out in comming days. I hope the analysis will stick to the issue - whether there were violations of the Geneva Conventions and if so how extensive they were, and whose fingerprints were on the underlying guidance rules which may have allowed these abuses to happen - and not become bogged down in partisan politics.
