Prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib - Brig Gen Janis Karpinski speaks out

There was a very interesting programme broadcast on BBC Radio4 this morning in the 'On the Ropes' strand. It was an interview by John Humphrys with US Brigadier General Janis Karpinski, the person until recently in charge at Abu Ghraib.

She contends that her principal role in this whole affair is as a 'convenient scapegoat'. You can listen to the whole interview - click on the link at the top right of the page I link to; the programme lasts 30 minutes. Listen and judge for yourself.
